Yes, there's an app for that!

Yes, the Frost Free Library catalog is now available at your fingertips via an app on your phone! If you see a title that you like at the bookstore or at your friend's home and wonder if your library has it you can either type in the title or just use the app to scan the ISBN bar code. 

 (Above: a sample of an ISBN bar code)

After you scan the ISBN barcode the word "Found" will appear if the Library owns the title. If you choose to type in the title you can see the cover and also see if the book is in the library or checked out.
For Android devices go to the 'Play Store', for iOS devices go to the 'App Store' and search 'Atriuum'. (Atriuum is the brand name of our catalog software.)

Once you download the app you will need to enter the information to connect with our Library. You will only need to do this once. 

Port: 80
Library: ffpl

Please call the library if you need assistance. We'll be glad to help!

Snowstorm in the Library!

We had a "Snowstorm in the Library Storytime" today after reading "Snowmen at Night" by Caralyn Buehner and  "A Little Bit of Winter" by Paul Stewart.  

After our stories we had a few 'storms' (very popular!) Then we put on music: "The Skater's Waltz" and skated with our wax paper skates. A few tumbles, a few twirls, and lots of fun! We had hot chocolate with marshmallows to warm up, then made our own decorated mittens.
The Snowstorm!
Skating to "The Skater's Waltz"
Skaters even tried twirls!
