Library introduces new ‘self-check’ stations

Checking out materials from Hood River Library is now easier than ever with the library’s two new “self-check” stations.

These new “self-check” stations have touch-screen monitors. Thanks to an upgrade to the library’s software, the self-checks have a new touch-friendly interface that includes not only the ability to check out, but also to view what items currently are checked out as well as see if you have any holds available to pick up.

In addition to the upstairs self-check that the library already had, there is now one available in the children’s library, too.

Don’t worry; staff will still be happy to assist you in checking out your materials, too.

The new touch-screen monitors were purchased thanks to the Friends of the Library and Library Foundation. For more information, contact the Hood River County Library District at 541-386-2535 or info@hoodriverli-brary.org, or visit hoodriverlibrary.org.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
