Library Discussion Forum
As some of you may have noticed, we've officially launched our library discussion forum. On the forum, we can all share our thoughts about issues related to the library. The rest of the website is pretty one-way: we put it up, and you read it. The forum is different in that it allows you to answer. All you need to sign onto the forum and share your thoughts is the number printed on the back of your library card (under the barcode).
