People often ask their reference questions by phoning the Newton Falls Public Library. “My friend just phoned me; she is lost and asked me for directions. Can you help me? I don’t have a clue where she is.” This is not the first time someone has called or visited the library asking for assistance getting from one place to another.
Our staff asked the caller where her friend was going, where she had started from, and if there were any landmarks or signs letting her know where she was at present. The driver had left Kent, Ohio, on her way to Alliance, and was on Route 619 near Hartville. The quickest way for us to find this information was to go to www.maps.google.com. Typing in the directions section, “from” route 619 Hartville, Ohio and “to” Alliance, Ohio, brought up the information that was needed. Our caller was able to pass the information onto her friend, who, we are happy to say arrived at her destination safely.
