Lifetime Learning Fall 2015 Courses
Beginning Friday morning, Sept. 11, Dr. Michael Norris will take us to Ancient Rome. He'll be followed, starting Oct. 9, by Dr. Robert Butts, who will explore the life and work of Mozart. On Thursday evenings, starting Sept. 17, Joseph Geddes of West Morris Central will lead an exploration of the concept of the double in the films of four great directors. ...
Due to time and other restrictions, we can't show the four films featured at the time of the lectures. However, DVDs of the films are or will soon be available at the library to be borrowed and watched at home.
You can register now. Forms are available at the library and online. The cost is $25 per series, and there is no residency requirement. Come join us and find out how much fun learning can be. All lectures are held in the library meeting room. Friday morning sessions begin at 10:30 am and Thursday evening programs start at 7 pm. Lifetime Learning is underwritten by Friends of WTPL.

3M Cloud Library
WTPL has launched its own 3M Cloud Library of ebooks and downloadable audiobooks. Our Cloud Library is linked to the MAIN Cloud Library, so patrons will continue to have access to the MAIN content in addition to the Washington Township Library content. As other MAIN libraries launch their own Private Clouds, you will be able to access their content as well, provided their patrons don’t have holds on the material. ...
In order to take advantage of this new content, you need to log out of the MAIN 3M Cloud on your device (usually found under settings) and then log back in, choosing the Washington Township Library as your library (instead of MAIN).
At this time your holds and reading history from your MAIN account will not be visible when logging in through Washington Township Library. 3M is currently investigating if it will be possible to move history and holds to the new private cloud. You will have to log in through your MAIN account to see that information and finish up the titles you are currently reading or listening to. Please place future holds through the Washington Township private cloud! Be sure to contact the Library if you have any questions.
