Local Lions Clubs Donate to PRL in eAudiobook Collaboration
Parkland Regional Library has received multiple donations from local Lions Clubs in Alix, Cremona, Rocky Mountain House, Spruce View, and Sylvan Lake to increase our eAudiobook collection that is available to all of our regional residents. These resources are especially useful for those who are visually impaired or print disabled. From their generous donation, we have been able to significantly increase our regional collection to 1,250 titles. For more information, please see our press release.
Updates to Material Processing, Disc Repair and Process Only Instructions
Our Technical Services department has released updated web page instructions concerning the course of action involved in Material Processing, Disc Repair, and Process Only. Downloadable Process Only queue flags and shipping labels can be found on the 'Process Only' webpage. Donated materials can only be five years old, published from 2009-2013.
