GOLD FEVER and THE BECHTLER MINT | Print |

Saturday, May 3rd at 2p.m. in the community room of the Mountains Branch Library

Did you know in the 1830s and 1840s, Rutherfordton was home to a successful private mint which produced more than $2.25 million dollars in gold coinage. The mint, founded by Christopher Bechtler, Sr. in 1831, is credited with producing the nation’s first $1 gold coin. 

Join us for a short film and Q&A with known historian and author, Robin Lattimore.

CMC Library Consortium Launches New Web Site and Online Catalog | Print |

On March 31st, the CMC Library Consortium began using a new online catalog system and a redesigned web site. The new catalog system and web site use a responsive web design that automatically adjusts to fit a range of devices (desktop computers, smartphones, tablets, etc). Features of the new online catalog include:

  • A special Kid’s Catalog designed for use by young children
  • The ability for patrons to add their own ratings and reviews of library items
  • Online account access where patrons can renew their books, update their contact information, and view their checkout history
  • Magazine and journal articles from the library’s online database collection are now included with every search

“Upgrades to these two systems have been a long time coming,” said Kenneth Odom, the consortium’s system administrator. “Patrons are increasingly using mobile and other handheld devices to access our resources, so it is good to finally be able to accommodate them with our new web site and online catalog. We are also very pleased with the look and functionality of the new catalog and believe patrons will be able to find items of interest easier and more quickly.”

One feature that has librarians very excited is the scrolling book jacket display. These displays can be customized by each library to showcase items new to the library, provide a list of staff recommendations, highlight a research subject area, and more. Each library will feature these displays on their public access catalog stations.

You can visit the redesigned CMC Library Consortium web site at www.cmclibraries.org and try out the new online catalog here
