LIBRARIES ARE LOCATED ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF EACH CLUBHOUSE.

JUST A REMINDER:  The newspapers available in the main library should be read IN THE LIBRARY.  Please do not take them home with you.  By keeping them in the library, more residents will have access to them.   A big thanks to our residents who share their daily newspapers!

Copies of the 2017 Ann's Choice Annual Report and the 2017 Resident Satisfaction Survey results are available in the libraries located in each clubhouse.  Library copies are for reference only - additional copies are available at the Administration Office in Village Clubhouse.

     Serving Ann's Choice Residents and Staff

 

What is Prospect Hill Library and where is it?

                 "Prospect Hill Library" is actually three entities and is a self-supporting resident activity financed by donations from residents and friends.  The libraries are managed by a volunteer resident committee (Prospect Hill Library Committee).   We receive no funding from Ann's Choice.  The facilities and furnishings belong to Ann's Choice, not to the Library Committee.

                 The "main" library is located on the second floor of Liberty Commons Clubhouse, adjacent to Signatures Lounge.  In addition, both Keystone Clubhouse and Village Clubhouse have "branch" libraries in the second floor lounges.

 

What's available in the libraries?

                Main library: 4000 books including large print books; paperback books; audio books (tape and CD);  DVDs and Blu-ray discs; magazines and newspapers; Internet access;  a card catalog.  

                Branch libraries (Village and Keystone Clubhouses):  fiction, mystery, and large print titles.  

                Checkout isn't required - just return the books to the library from which you borrowed them when you are finished.  DVDs and Audio Books should be returned to the main library in Liberty Commons.

               

 When are the libraries open?

                We're always open!  The libraries are set up to be self-service operations, but you may find one of our Committee members working in them when you're there.  We'll be happy to help you.

 

What are the suggested loan periods?

                Main library:   three weeks for books and audio books and one week for DVDs  However, if you can't get them back within that period, please return them as soon as you can so that others may enjoy them.  

                Branches:  no restrictiions.

 

Are there fines if my books are returned late?

                No!  We don't charge fines or send overdue notices.

 

What does the Library Committee do?

                Committee members determine policies and procedures  and handle the day-to-day responsibilities of keeping the libraries functioning.  Anyone interested in joining the committee should attend one of our meetings.    No previous library experience is necessary.

 

 Where do all of the books come from?

                Most of the books and other materials in the libraries have been donated by residents and staff.  The library committee purchases large print books as funds are available. 

               

 What kind of donations are you looking for?

                Donations are always welcome.  However, space is limited and we do have some restrictions.  Copies of our full Donation Policy are available in the main library and are posted at each of the branch libraries.   We would prefer fiction (including mysteries) that has been published within the last five years;  non-fiction that has been published within the last ten years; DVDs and Blu-ray discs (movies and TV series) in their original packaging.  Paperback books and large print books of any age may be donated if in good condition.  We also accept current issues of general interest magazines.  If you would like to share your daily newspaper, please put it on the newspaper rack in the main library.  

                 WE CANNOT USE  videocassettes, music CDs or cassettes, old/damaged books, multi-book sets on a single subject, "coffee table" books, encyclopedias, books in foreign languages, Reader's Digest Condensed books, puzzles or games.

                ALL ITEMS DONATED BECOME THE PROPERTY OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE.  Because we receive more items than we can accomodate, some may be given to other libraries or non- profit organizations if we can't use them.  

                If you have large quanities of books that you need to dispose of, please call Joan Greenberg (see Resident Directory for contact information).  Please DO NOT just abandon them at the library.

 

YOUR SUPPORT AND SUGGESTIONS  

ARE ALWAYS APPRECIATED!
