Stroll down memory lane with us and share your memories of Northland. Here are a few memory ticklers: Do you remember when Northland was at Three Degree Road? Do you remember when we moved into our current site and when we were at Northway Mall during our renovation? How about sharing your memories with us and our Northland family.

Do you remember...

The Director's Corner, by Sandra Collins

Welcome to Northland’s blog. You’ll need to bear with some of us old folks who are tiptoeing into the use of new technology – but my staff has finally dragged me kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Northland is all about connections –connecting you to books – to information – to learning –to the world and to our communities-to each other. Our blog is another tool designed to connect Northland to you and vice versa. Important connections for Northland are:

• Our memberships in the Allegheny County Library Association and the Electronic Information Network which has made the collections of all 44 libraries in Allegheny County available to you.

• Our participation in Access Pennsylvania which has made the collections of participating libraries throughout Pennsylvania and the P.O.W.E.R (Pennsylvania Online World of Electronic Resources) databases available to you.

• Our monthly Conversation Salon which provides a forum for discussion of topics of interest to those attending.

• Storytimes for children, ages 6 months to 5 years, which lay the foundation for lifelong learning.

• Computer Classes for adults of all ages that provide connections to the world of technology.

How does Northland help you make connections?
