Do you get frustrated using a computer because you type slowly and make errors? We have a solution! The Library's word processing computers now have Mavis Beacon typing tutorial software installed. Come in whenever the library is open to get started. A valid Speedway Library card is required to access the word processing computers.
The library now has a collection of adult literacy books available for checkout. These are books for beginning adult readers and their tutors. They are high interest, contemporary stories with a low reading level.
You can find the adult literacy collection in the Reference Room. These books may be checked out five at a time for three weeks.
This collection is a result of the Long Range Planning Committee’s hard work and dedication.
The Speedway Public Library will send overdue notifications by email. If your email address is on file, you will automatically receive electronic notices. If your email address is not on file and you would like to receive overdue notices by email, talk to the staff to submit your email address. The library will continue to send out paper notifications to those who do not wish to receive them electronically. Please speak with the library staff about options.
The Speedway Public Library will clean and repair up to five scratched DVD, CD, or video game discs per person at a time. Drop off your discs at the library, then come back in one full week to pick them up clean and refreshed! A charge of $1.00 per disc will be assessed to go to the Friends of the Speedway Public Library for future library programs.
The library's Playaway collection keeps growing! Playaways are now available to our younger patrons, including titles such as Percy Jackson, The 39 Clues, The Tale of Desperaux, and more. Kids' Playaways will be available in the children's room near the DVDs.
