Welcome to Check it Out, CCPL’s Blog. I am delighted to announce that we have shifted formats. Information once contained in our popular magazine is now being shared on our blog. We are excited to enter this new phase of sharing who and what we are with all CCPL customers in a more popular and effective format.

Using web technology to distribute newsletter content is not new from a publisher's perspective. In the mid-’80s, the internet offered several approaches to share and moderate news and discussion groups. This lead many of the newsletter moderators to share their personal lives in their daily posts or ‘web logs’. As this approach and format emerged, the term ‘web log’ easily shifted to the more logical ‘weblogs’ term. These online daily journals continued to expand in dimension and scope and began to include webcams that allowed the author to combine text, pictures and live video. By 1997 the term weblog was shortened to blog and the authors became bloggers and the rest is now newsletter history.  

CCPL will begin sharing news, library information, stories and updates in this same format here on the Check It Out blog. We hope that the format will provide all of our users an effective opportunity to engage with the library and library staff in a more personal exchange. 

In the meantime - welcome to Check It Out!
