Senior Tech – July

Wednesday, July 24
10:30 am – 12:00 pm
 
Senior Tech meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month.
 
We’re here to help in any way we can with your tech questions. We work together as a group to answer similar questions, and break out into smaller groups to answer individual questions.
 
If you have a question, we will help you find an answer. You wouldn’t believe some of the things we’ve been able to help solve!

Free Passes to the Maine Historical Society Museum!

We have 4 passes from the Maine Historical Society. Each pass is good for up to 4 adults to go to the museum, plus $5 off Wadsworth-Longfellow house tours. And you get 10% off in the gift shop. The MHS gift shop has lots of great books and posters. Grab a pass and check out the MHS!

An Idea Whose Time Has Come: Cooperative Borrowing with Other Libraries!

Library cards from South Portland, Gorham, Westbrook, Scarborough, and Cape ElizabethWe are pleased to announce that, in addition to our existing cooperative arrangement with South Portland Public Library, you may now use your TML card at three other libraries close by: Scarborough Public LibraryWalker Memorial Library in Westbrook, and Baxter Memorial Library in Gorham! 

FAQs

  • Will I need to get a new card at each library?
    No, your home library (TML) card will work everywhere.
  • I forgot my library card; can I still checkout?
    You will need to bring your home library (TML) card when visiting other libraries.  A photo ID may not be accepted when visiting other libraries.
  • May I return items borrowed from one library to another?
    If possible, return items to the library you borrowed them from. If you can’t, we’ll send them back.
  • Will I be charged late fees?
    Late fees are charged based on your home library’s rules (TML doesn’t charge fees). Please be respectful of other libraries’ materials and return them on time.
  • Can I place a request while at another library?
    No; this arrangement only covers materials on the shelf. Any ILL requests or holds should be made at your home library or online.

Cloud Library Replaces Overdrive

Cloud Library

The Thomas Memorial Library has switched to Bibliotheca’s Cloud Library by 3M because it is more user-friendly, gives us access to more titles, and allows school libraries to join in on the fun!

You are now able to sync your ebooks & audiobooks between six devices automatically and can stream audiobooks using wifi instead of downloading. We can also add parental passwords for families. The improvements are endless!

To access this incredible resource, download a “new” app called Cloud Library. Content will remain largely unchanged, but Kindle E ink devices will no longer be supported. The new app is fun and easy to use. You’ll find complete details here!
