Chandler Museum closure

From Jean Reynolds, 9/13/17:

Hello all, I just wanted to let you know, if you hadn't heard already, that the Chandler Museum will be closed to the public starting September 18th and will re-open to the public in about a year. Those of you who work the public information desks or take calls may get a question here and there either about the museum, or perhaps a local history research oriented question from the public. You can let them know the museum is closed but for those with research questions, they can still contact Nate Meyers at 480-782-2877. The museum will also still be doing public programs in various locations including in collaboration with our library branches.  

You can read about the new museum project here  

You can direct customers interested in the museum to this page to learn about their public programs over the year.

New Arizona Driver Licenses

Arizona Driver Licenses will need to be updated by October 1, 2020 to meet new federal standards for identification. These Voluntary Travel IDs will act as both a driver license and as identification at airport security, federal buildings, and military facilities. (Drivers who do not need to use these facilities do not need to update their licenses.)

New identification requirements are also in place. See the list from ADOT for required documentation. The new licenses cost $25.

To update a current driver license, make an appointment at an MVD office by using ServiceArizona. (MVD office visits are by appointment only.) There is also a list of walk-in 3rd-party providers that can be used; a convenience fee may apply.

For new licenses or licenses that are up for renewal, visit any MVD office or 3rd-party provider. No appointment is needed.

For more information, see the AZDOT Voluntary Travel ID page.

New Scanner Station

Listing tips about the new scanner station as we discover them:

Adjusting scans/copies
There is very little adjustment available. Lightness/contrast cannot be changed. Copies/scans of photo IDs or credit cards work best in color, but require $1 per page to print.

Emailing scans
When people email scans, the sender will show up as "No Reply" <>

Prescription discount cards

from Mary Sagar's email 8/8/12:

You may have noticed the display near the reference desk that contains the new Coast2Coast Rx discount cards.  I just spoke with City Hall about these cards, and they said that we can distribute these cards to anyone who asks -- whether or not they are Chandler residents.  The customers should then check to make sure that their pharmacy is participating in the Coast2Coast discount program.  

Also, here is a direct link to Coast2Coast's website:

Computer Lab

From Sue's email, 2/6/12:

The Quiet Lab is open to adults who need a quiet place to work (far from the maddening crowd). The rules are: no talking, no cell phones, no group work. If people want to talk or work together, they need to sit in the commons area. I'm not ready to open it up to the teens just yet. I need some feedback about whether that's a good idea or not.

On kids in the lab, 9/12/12:

It's about keeping quiet. That said, how quiet can a toddler be? I'm guessing not very. Even under the best of circumstances (sleeping). So what age can a kid be expected to remain quiet? 10? 12? It's hard to pin point that exact age but probably not before they could be in the library unattended. The teens can even be in there if they can remain quiet.

Art in the library

The art that was in the "tunnel" in the front of Sunset, before the remodel, has been moved to the Basha branch. (12/8/11)

The new public art mentioned in a City of Chandler news release is the glass enclosing the children's room. There is a plaque on the yellow wall outside of it identifying the artist.
