The library's affiliation with NTRLS has again proven invaluable. Mid-March of this year, NTRLS "loaned" us their Information Technology Specialist, Adam Beatty, who installed a new software program called DEEP FREEZE, courtesy of the Friends. This program protects our server by wiping out all data entered or imported on the patron computers each and every time we log those computers off of the internet. This prevents virus contamination by malicious or unknown sources. Another advantage of using this software is that it allows patrons to download almost anything they wish (except porn, of course) without having to ask us to use our employee computers to do so. Already, this program is saving the library staff much time and gives the Director some peace of mind. Thank you, Friends!
We would like to thank all the 2005 financial donors. Every dollar we receive goes to the betterment of the library. We ask for your continued support. Thank you everyone!
