Have you ever wondered whether the Sackville Public Library has anything to offer Mount Allison students?
All you need to access the resources available at any New Brunswick Public Library is a library card. This one card can be used to access over 2 million books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, eBooks, audiobooks and more. If you are from New Brunswick and already have a library card from your home library, you are good to go. If you are from outside of New Brunswick, note that any Mt. A student can obtain a library card for use while within the province. All we need is a piece of ID with your home address on it, as well as your Mt. A student card.
Most items listed in the online catalogue can be borrowed. Those not available at the Sackville Public Library can be placed on hold and brought in for you to borrow. With a library card, placing holds can even be done from the convenience of your own device. You can also log into your account to keep track of checked-out items, holds and dates due. With an active email address, you will be notified when items are due and when holds are available to be picked up.
By accessing the New Brunswick Public Library website, you also have access to a full range of other services. These include ebooks as well as a number of online databases, including Rosetta Stone, Canadian Reference Centre and Gale Business Plans Handbook.
If you are looking for something to do in your downtime, we have some fall programs that might be of interest.These include Wednesday afternoon drop-in adult colouring, monthly adult book club, Friday morning de-stress and coffee time, monthly family movie nights and the ever-popular downtown Moonlight Madness events. For more info on our upcoming programs, drop by and pick up a copy of our monthly program flyer, as well as checking us out on the library’s Facebook page. The Sackville Public Library also has a basement meeting room that can be booked for study groups or various workshops.

Want to get out in the community and obtain some experiences to add to your resumé? There are also various opportunities for volunteering at the library. We are especially looking for those with some special creative skills, such as face painting or balloon creations, who can volunteer during special events like Moonlight Madness and March Break activities.
