Are you familiar with the Michigan eLibrary, a free, round-the-clock, online library that offers virtually limitless access to information?
If not, then it's time to get to know MeL by visiting MeL.org. MeL allows users to search across a host of quality information resources, many of which cannot be found elsewhere on the Internet - all available absolutely free to Michigan residents, 24 hours a day/seven days a week from home, work, school or the library.
Anyone looking for the best information around, whether for a work project, school assignment, career or health information pursuits, can benefit from this powerful and easy-to-use resource. MeL.org features an array of valuable services, including: MeL Databases, MeL Featured Resources & Gateways, MeL Michigana and, of course, MeLCat,resource-sharing service that allows GPPL patrons to search for, locate and request materials from a single, comprehensive catalog that includes the holdings of other libraries around the state.
The Foundation office has moved to Central Library. Now more than ever the library can use your financial help. All but a small portion of what is donated goes to providing programs and materials for the library. This year the Foundation gave a gift of $90,000 to the library.
