Welcome to Brentwood Public Library's Blogs

We're setting up these blogs to keep our patrons informed of breaking news and features we think you might find interesting.

Why Are We Hopping on the Blogwagon?Aside from being a part of a growing technology trend, Brentwood Public Library blog give us a means to share information immediately and less formally than in traditional publications, such as the newsletter and even the website. A quick check here gives you an up-to-the-minute snapshot of what's going on with Brentwood Public Library. It also enables you to tell us what you think — to offer suggestions, ask us questions and give us your point of view. Ideally, the blog will become a community that builds better library service for everyone involved with Brentwood Public Library

Of course, we will maintain a professional environment. We ask that all comments remain respectful, neutral and Brentwood Public Library-related; we will be happy to provide information about the Brentwood Public Library and its services, but we will not engage in issue-oriented debates.

There are a few rules:

Respect everyone's right to an opinion. Profanity, put downs, inappropriate language or content will be REMOVED from your comments.

No website links may be included in your comment; they will also be REMOVED.

NO PERSONAL INFORMATION such as phone numbers, IM screen names, other people's names, email addresses or things of the same nature will be allowed on comments. This is for your safety.

When leaving a comment, you will be asked to "sign" the comment with your name and e-mail address. You may use first name, last name, both, or a "user name" you make up. Your e-mail address will not be published, but it must be real.

That said, we look forward to reading your comments online.
