[ARCHIVED] Library System Update Planned for August 31 - Limited Services Available

Computer with cogs and download meter announces Library System update planned for August 31, 2023.

The library will hold a scheduled system update on Thursday, August 31.

We are upgrading our Polaris Library System to the latest version that will help improve several services for our patrons!

This update will start at 8:00 AM, and is expected to last into the afternoon, but could potentially be finished earlier.

During this time, patrons will be able to:

- Turn in items.
- Hang out in the building, utilize the facilities, and read library materials.
- Use the library computers with your card and PIN password.
- Utilize the Wi-Fi from personal devices. Free for 30 minutes, or log on using your card and PIN password.
- Print out items ONLY if there are existing funds already allocated to your library card.


Patrons (and staff) will NOT be able to:
- Check items out.
- Start new accounts or update existing ones.
- Do any monetary transactions with cash or cards.
- Access the library online card catalog.
- Reset card passwords
- Patrons might experience a lapse in eBook services and apps, along with accessing certain databases.


We will keep you posted during this process.

Please plan ahead as best as possible (checking out items, picking up holds, updating card passwords, etc.).

Be sure to keep an eye out for Facebook updates, and let us know if you have any questions!
