New Catalog System

Our library is getting a new circulation/catalog system

The library will be closed over the Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, May 28-30. On Friday, May 27 at 3 pm you will no longer be able to place holds or renew items online.

On Tuesday, May 31, the library's new system will be operational. The online catalog will look different, but you will still have access to your account, including any lists you have saved in our former online catalog. Items that were returned in our bookdrop over the weekend will be checked back in and will not incurr any incorrect fines.

To access your new online account , you will need to use your library card number as your user name. Your default password will be the last four digits of your phone number. You will be prompted to change your password the first time you log in.

The new catalog features a simple-to-use basic serach and a robust advanced search. Placing holds will no longer require entering your library card for each hold. Accessing the resources of the other libraries in our network has been streamlined, so the materials of over 50 other public libraries are a click away.
If you have your email address on file with the library, you will automatically get alerts when your items are about to be due. You will also get hold notices and overdue notices in your email.
Please be patient with library staff as we learn and navigate through this new system. Having your library card with you will help us serve you faster.
Thank you.
