RMA presents ‘Greenwich Library in a Digital Age’

Barbara Ormerod-Glynn, director of the Greenwich Libraries will talk about the Greenwich Library in a Digital Age at the next meeting of the Retired Men’s Association of Greenwich, Inc. (RMA) on Wednesday, Aug. 10, at 11 a.m., at First Presbyterian Church, Greenwich.

On an average day, nearly 2,000 people enter one of the Greenwich Library’s three sites, making it one of the most popular services in the area and the busiest public library in Connecticut. Most days the 100 public PCs with Internet access are in full use, the conference rooms are booked solid, and parking can be a challenge. E-books continue to replace use of hard copy books: “Use of e-books and audiobooks continue to grow in popularity since they can be downloaded from our website 24/7… However, while it may be more convenient – and economical when traveling – there’s something about the allure of turning printed pages that seemingly can’t be beat.”

Barbara Ormerod-Glynn will discuss what brought the Library into such widespread service to the community, what it offers now, and where it might be going in a world that is rapidly digitizing.

Director of the Greenwich Library since March 2014, and Deputy Director for nine years prior, she earlier held library positions at Columbia and Fordham universities, as well as at Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, and the Yonkers Public Library.

Omerod-Glynn earned her BA in English Literature from the College of Mount St. Vincent, and her MLS (Library Service) from Columbia University.

The Greenwich Retired Men’s Association offers a free program every Wednesday that is open to the public, both men and women; no reservations are required. Our social break starts at 10:40AM followed promptly by our speaker at 11:00AM. Programs are at the First Presbyterian Church, 1 West Putnam in Greenwich.
