NEW HAVEN FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY UNVEILS DYNAMIC NEW WEBSITE
(11/19/2012) (New Haven, CT) - The New Haven Free Public Library (“NHFPL”) today has unveiled a new website for customers, dramatically improving online access and information services to residents. The upgrade is the first major redesign of the Library website in more than 10 years.
The upgraded site features a new interactive calendar as well as enhanced daily event listings covering programs and events at all of the NHFPL’s five locations. The new website will also enable residents to apply for library cards online. The website has a redesigned section for younger customers showcasing resources, programs and technology available to kids and teenagers. Another important addition to the new website is a service for information seekers entitled Encore. Through a single search box, Encore connects users to all the trusted resources the library collects. Customers can search the NHFPL’s online catalog and many of the reference databases at the same time.
Other new website enrichments include:
• language features that will translate the website into Spanish and Chinese
• easy access from the homepage to noteworthy books and DVDs by category
• a “How Do I?” feature that provides links to pages where the most frequently asked questions can be found
• dynamic slideshow on various pages that provide enhanced knowledge of library programs and services
“I am delighted to offer this new website to library customers during our 125 Anniversary milestone year. As an organization that provides access to information, the new website allows us to take one more step in solidifying the NHFPL’s reputation as a premier educational resource for the City of New Haven,” said NHFPL Director Christopher Korenowsky.
The New Haven Free Public Library website’s address can be found at www.nhfpl.org.
