Announcement of Digital Library Launch and Patron Survey!

Dear Patrons,

After diligent research and preparation over the past two years by the librarian, Joseph Patzner, director Alex Vastola, and the Trustees of the Robert R Livingston Masonic Library we are proud to announce the library will be launching a digital library hosted by Odilo on Monday, March 1st.

Odilo is a digital content platform, which will allow patrons to borrow and enjoy the digital versions of reading course books and other library materials as PDFs and ePubs from their e-reader, phone, tablet, or computer. Additionally, we hope this service will help reduce long waits for books from our most popular courses allowing patrons to continue their personal Masonic education.

Patrons will be able to check out up to 3 books at a time and books will be loaned for 21 days and are returned automatically at the end of the loan period.

You will soon be receiving a link to our patron survey. We request all patrons complete this survey. Our goal is to have clearer insight into our patron’s reading habits, feedback on our reading courses, and verify contact information. Your responses will inform how we grow our print and electronic collections to best serve our patrons and researchers.

Please note the information collected during the survey will be used internally for research purposes only and not shared with anyone outside the Livingston Masonic Library.
