Library Mission Statement:
The mission of the Barton Library is to provide: customer service that exceeds expectations; information in a variety of formats that educates, inspires, and entertains; and a welcoming environment for lifelong learning linking this community to the world.
Barton patrons can now access their favorite digital magazine using Zinio. Zinio is a magazine service that allows people to browse digital versions of the latest issues of popular magazines, courtesy of the Library. Only a library card is needed to use Zinio.
Search Engines That Respect Your Privacy
Google, Bing, Yahoo – all the major search engines track your search history and build profiles on you, serving different results based on your search history. Try one of these alternative search engines if you’re tired of being tracked.
Startpage searches Google for you – when you submit a search, Startpage submits the search to Google and returns the results to you. All Google sees is a large amount of searches coming from Startpage’s servers – they can’t tie any searches to you or track your searches.
Unlike Startpage, Ixquick pulls results from a variety of sources instead of only Google – this can be a good or a bad thing, depending on how much you like Google’s search results.
