A library card is your access point to the rest of the world. The Library Card Toolkit (potential alternative: Learn Your Library) is a fun library skills course for the New Lenox Public Library. Its goal is to develop a friendly space patrons can access anywhere, any time. Patrons can learn basics and tricks for searching our catalog, how to sign up for programs and study rooms, where different subjects and media can be found around the library, what technology is available in the Digital Media Lab, what library staff does behind the scenes, and more.
The first module developed was the Digital Media Lab’s Online Orientation, shown at left. The module will go live with the launch of our redesigned website during Spring 2017.
