Testing, 1-2-3

A couple of weeks ago, we tested connectivity to the library's new outdoor LED sign. There's a white layer protecting the screen during construction, which partially obscures image resolution.  The graphics will look much clearer and sharper once the white cover is removed.

Sign of the Times

Construction of the library's new outdoor LED sign is underway.  Soon you will be able to keep abreast of library programs, events, and information.  The new sign will have much higher resolution and detail than our old one, which met with an unfortunate accident last December.

MERLIN Magnifier Gets You Up Close and Personal

Click Image to Enlarge

Mooresville Public Library offers a MERLIN magnifying reader machine for patrons who need to enlarge what they are looking at. The magnifier enlarges anything that is placed on the scanning platform--print materials or other physical objects--and projects the larger image onto the screen. The picture below gives a clearer illustration:

MERLIN is available thanks to a generous donation from the Mooresville (Indiana) Lions Club in March, 2005. The magnifier is a wonderful tool for anyone researching difficult-to-read documents, fine print, or obscure details.

If you are interested in using MERLIN, please visit the MPL Adult Information Desk.  MERLIN sits directly across from this desk, adjacent to the adult reference shelves.
