There’s More @ Your Library!

If you haven’t taken a look at our website in a while, you might find something new and exciting!

First, if you’re missing the reading recommendations MPL staff give in person, we can help! Whether you know exactly what you want, or if you want us to surprise you with some choices, you can fill out a short form at www.midlandlibrary.com/personal-reading-recommendations and we’ll get back to you with recommendations just for you! You can also call 705-526-4216 for staff help.

Along with all our traditional collections, we’ve started loaning some new and exciting things, including park passes, wifi hotspots, light therapy lamps, Maker @ Home and Adventure kits, and much more! Find all the details at www.midlandlibrary.com/cool-things-to-borrow.

You’re probably joining in on our online programs, but if you missed one, you can find lots of our recorded programs at www.midlandlibrary.com/free-online-activities, as well as curated resources from around the web and helpful tips for virtual learning. Our early literacy and family storytime recordings are there, as well as the videos and supply lists you need for some of our great DIY programs, author visits, and much more!

Our e-databases page can help with all your learning and research! Press Reader is new – access  more than 7,000 of the world’s top newspapers and magazines as soon as they’re available on shelves. There are no limits on downloads. Use Press Reader via their free app or on the web by selecting “Sign In,” choosing their “Library or Group Sign In” option, and selecting the Simcoe County Library Cooperative.

LinkedIn Learning is an amazing resource! With thousands of courses taught by industry professionals in everything from design, business, photography, to learning to play musical instruments, these videos, learning paths, and certifications can help you meet your personal and professional goals.

Those are just two highlights – we have online resources to help you work on your car, find teen health information, research your family tree, pass your driving test, and much more!
