On May 23, there will be a better way to find books, movies, and music. Your library is getting a new library catalog!
If you've ever searched for a book or movie at our library, you have used our catalog. On May 23, that will be upgraded to a new, better catalog. What will be different?
It will look different.
You'll be able to create a personal reading history (if you want to), or create a wish list.
It will have "auto suggestions" (start typing, and suggestions will appear).
Create your own username and password -- no more having to remember that silly 14-digit number. Yippie!
Text notifications (if you like texting, you'll love this).
This is a pretty huge project for the library, so during May 17-23, you might notice a few things that don't work quite like normal or that limit your access:
No catalog searching. Don't worry -- you can still check stuff out! Head to the shelves and rediscover the joy of browsing.
You won't be able to place holds or get to your account. Those concerned about renewing before you get fined, don't worry. Nothing will be overdue May 17-23.
No DVD Dispenser (we'll get it connected to the new service as soon as possible).
Otherwise, it's business as usual. So -- May 23 your library is bringing you a modern library catalog. We think you'll like it! If you have questions, just ask by leaving a comment below.
