RTM Votes to Fund Renovation Project

Our deepest thanks to all who voiced support for our planned renovation project and donated to our campaign.  At their special meeting on January 10, the RTM voted to  appropriate the necessary funding to make the project a reality!  We’ll post more information as we move forward with the process.  We could not have done this without you!

Blackstone Library Learning Commons

The Reference staff at the library has created a learning commons to provide instructions, tutorials, and links for a variety of topics. You’ll find tip sheets and links to tutorials on subjects such as downloading ebooks and audiobooks, Microsoft Office, email, computers, social media and more. Visit the Learning Commons page to see what is available; we will continue to add to and update the page.

On Demand Videos

The library is pleased to offer an on demand streaming service called Kanopy. You’ll find independent, classic, international films and documentaries. Included are the Criterion Collection, the Great Courses and PBS. You can stream up to 5 videos a month. Create an account at Kanopy, using your Blackstone Library card.
