If you need a particular book, or a book about an unusual subject, and we don’t have what you need here in McDonald county, we can borrow a book from another library for you!
The service is called Inter-Library Loan (or just I.L.L. for short), and for a very small postage fee – usually around $1 or $2 per book – we’ll borrow the book from another library that has it available.
Once the book arrives, we’ll notify you, and you can pick it up here at the Pineville Library.
When you are finished with the book (or whenever it comes due) just bring it back to the library and we’ll return the book to the original lending library for you.
And as of November 2010, we’ve just made it even easier and more convenient for you…
You can now place your request online!
If this is your first time using Inter-Library Loan,
you are encouraged to ask one of the library staff for assistance.
We are happy to help!
Here’s a new feature from your library: Once every week (or so), we’re recommending one (or more) of our favorite FREE software programs, that you can download directly to your home PC or laptop!
This week’s featured freeware program: CCleaner 3.0
CCleaner is a system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it’s fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware!
You can download it at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner

CCleaner is one of our all-time favorites… Get it today so you can clear space on your computer to install all of the other great freeware we’ll be featuring in the weeks to come!
Did you know that the Library has audio books in both cassette and cd formats?
If you want to enjoy a book while you are driving or working, then audio is the way to go! Why sit in traffic and listen to bad morning radio shows, when you could be enjoying your favorite book? And, our library is involved in a leasing program, which means we are constantly adding titles to our collection.
Search for an audio book now… cassette … or … CD.
Thanks to Kenny & Amey at the McDonald County Recorder’s Office and Bruce at the McDonald County Library, we’ve complied a complete Index of all Marriage Records from 1865 to 2009 – now available online to search and/or download to your computer!
This index includes all marriage licenses issued in McDonald county from October 1865 to December 2009, with instructions on how to order printed copies of the original record kept on file at the County Recorder’s office. The index can be viewed online, organized by the husband’s last name; or the entire index can be downloaded onto your computer in a spreadsheet format.
A great resource for genealogists and historians!
