When you sign up for a library card (or if you already have one) you have an account on PamCat, our online library catalog. Go to PamCat, at http://www.pamcat.org/, or click on "Login/Search PamCat" on the library's web site. In PamCat, you can log in using your library card number and your password. Everyone starts out with the default password changeme. You'll want to change your password to something more personalized after you log in.
Once, you've logged in to your PamCat account, you can do all sorts of things. You can place holds on books, which can be sent to your local branch library from any of our ten branches or the Bookmobile. You can renew your books, DVDs, music CDs, and more. You can even see lists of your favorite authors and subject headings.
You can find out all about your account and PamCat with our handy PamCat guides at http://www.pamunkeylibrary.org/quick_guides.htm. Don't worry if you ever forget your password. Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your local branch library, and we'll be happy to reset it for you.

Does it seem like your teen can't tear herself away from friends on the computer screen (except to text them on her cell phone)? That's because MySpace, Facebook and YouTube are your son or daughter's life, not just another passing diversion. All that energy and time spent online is affecting your teen's life in countless ways. Some schools are banning online networking sites, yet your child insists they're "no big deal." Who's right? Drawing on personal interviews with hundreds of teens, educator Candice M. Kelsey helps parents assess what they should--and shouldn't--be worried about when it comes to technology.
Companion website to a 2007 documentary about the summer of 1967, when "thousands of young people from across the country flocked to San Francisco's Haight Ashbury district to join in the hippie experience, only to discover that what they had come for was already disappearing." Features include an illustrated article about the San Francisco Oracle periodical, video clips of San Francisco events, personal stories, teacher's guide, and more. From the PBS program American Experience.
