In the text box, just note that you are interested in ordering a town flag and the price range you are willing to order at (see below).
Once we have enough interest within your price range, we will place a bulk order. You will be notified at that time that your order has been placed. (We will also confirm receipt of your interest as soon as you send us your message.)
Bulk pricing on our town flag is as follows:
6-11 flags ordered = $90.00 each
12-24 ordered = $72.00 each
25-49 ordered = $54.00 each
50-99 ordered = $42.00 each
The above pricing is based on the most popular size for residential use – 3 feet by 5 feet. These flags are nylon printed flags, with standard heading and grommets for attaching to a flag pole.

The Trustees of the David & Joyce Milne Public Library are conducting research to help inform our 2015 Milne Library Master Plan. This plan will help us set priorities for services and programs in the next 5 years. So that we may better serve you, we would like to learn more about your needs and interests. Whether you visit the Library once a week, once a month, hardly ever, or even never, we want to know YOUR thoughts. What should your public library offer to its community?
This survey should take about 10 minutes to complete, and your responses are anonymous.
If you have any questions about the survey, please do not hesitate to email Pat McLeod, Library Director, at email@example.com, or call the library at (413) 458-5369.
Thank you for your participation.
Recorded Books is pleased to announce Zinio for Libraries, a new online periodical catalog with magazines free for library patrons to browse.
To Access: use the following web link to get to the Zinio homepage and set up your new free Zinio account: https://www.rbdigital.com/50emagazine/service/zinio/landing/
NOTE: there are SPECIFIC steps to set up a free account and to access magazines from a mobile device.
First, you MUST create your Zinio account via their website. After creating your account online, select any magazines you’d like to read. Once you’ve done this, you can then activate your mobile device to view the magazines you’ve selected online.
To activate your mobile device for viewing magazines, go to the app store, search for the Zinio app, and download it. Now this is where is gets a little tricky. When you log into the app (with the name and password you created at their website), it will ask you to select your country (pick United States), and then your state – BUT you HAVE TO select Maryland as your home state, not Massachusetts. And instead of your library name, you MUST type in/or select “Popular 50 eMagazine Collection.” Once you’ve done this, you will see the magazines you selected via their website, ready for viewing. You will only have to do this once.
If you have any questions, comments, please contact us at the library.
