7 More Ways the Library Can Save You Money

April 11, 2014 by storysean

Energize your household budget 


The following tips are great ways to cut costs at home, while using the library.



1. Give your furnace a rest and enjoy the warmth at all eight library locations. Most libraries are open seven days a week with convenient hours. Relax and spend some time in a comfortable chair with a good book or magazine.

2. Get ideas and how-to instruction from our vast holdings on home improvement. Choose from wide-ranging topics like tiling a bathroom to wiring a new electrical outlet. Find the information in step-by-step books and videos/DVDs. Our library also offers remote access to many home-improvement magazines.

3. On the look out for new sheet music? Polley music library has thousands of compositions and arrangements available for checkout. Consult with the Polley librarian to find out all about the wide-ranging music styles and sheet music they make available to the public.

4. Investigate our free legal forms before paying for one. Lincoln City Libraries offers many forms, both online and in books for users to consult. Some specific forms many find useful include: estate planning, rental agreements, and power of attorney.  Lincoln City Libraries cannot recommend or provide legal advice for our customers, but we can show you our resources.

5. Don't despair, repair! Try your hand at automobile repair. We offer repair manuals and wiring diagrams for many foreign and domestic cars.These resources are available at each library location and online.

6. Checkout a game from the library. Did you know the library has video games to borrow? Preview the titles and place your free holds. Many of our titles are geared towards family play and can be enjoyed by players of all ages.

Researching Health Information

June 24, 2013 by storysean

How can the library help you research your health condition?

We all know how scary and uncertain everything seems when we aren't feeling healthy. People often turn to their libraries to research conditions, treatments, and to help self-diagnose. Libraries are great places to do this, but we always recommend seeking a doctor's help first and foremost. We aren't doctors, but we can often put you in touch with important resources to help you understand a diagnosis or explore health issues.

One resource that we highly recommend for Nebraska residents is the CHIRS (pronounced "cheers") service from McGoogan Medical Library in Omaha. CHIRS is a service for residents that have been doctor diagnosed with a condition or illness and are looking for authoritative information to expand their understanding. After you submit a CHIRS request a medical librarian will personally compile the latest information from reliable sources and deliver it to you either electronically or through the mail--for free.

Many people prefer to search online resources themselves. For them, we recommend our electronic resources like Health & Wellness Resource Center and our Health and Medicine collection of eBooks. Health & Wellness Resource Center is a comprehensive database of over 400 health/medical journals, hundreds of pamphlets, and over 700 health-related videos. Both resources are available online to valid Lincoln City Libraries cardholders. Health and Medicine eBooks are collections of full-text material on a variety of subjects--some even in Spanish. (Please note: these eBooks are not downloadable for use with an e-Reader; they are intended for reading on a computer screen.) What makes these resources special, is that they are compiled from reliable sources--saving you the work of evaluating the reliability of multiple Websites and disparate resources.

If Online resources aren't for you, then make sure to come into your local library branch and talk to a librarian about what books, magazines, and reference material they may have available. Our librarians are also available to help demonstrate some of our electronic resources. Many of our resources can be printed out for you to take home. 

We hope that Lincoln City Libraries can help you discover the resources that best address your health questions. We do recommend that everyone researching health-related information first contact their physician or health care provider and evaluate information for reliability and authority. The Medical Library Association provides a User's Guide to Finding and Evaluating Health Information on the Web.
