You may notice some changes with our library’s online catalog and while checking out books at the circulation desk. We’re excited to be using a new system, Apollo.
(They’ve won the Modern Library Award — Product of the Year for the last several years now. Article: Apollo in the 7th year at the top. )
If you’re wishing to log into your library account or access your OverDrive account, please contact the library and leave a message for our Director Jill Brown or shoot her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (and be sure to mention your full name in the email). Let us know what you’d like your new password to be and she’ll be able to re-configure your account and get you back reading!
Once you have access to your library account, you’ll be able to make reserves, renew your items, and view your check-out history (you can opt out of this, if you wish).
When checking out items in the library, you’ll be presented with a printed receipt listing all of the items you just checked out with their due date instead of the stamped due date card. Also on your receipt, you’ll also see other items you currently have checked out and any fines you may owe.
The transfer of data from our old system to the new one has been a little bumpy. Please bear with us as we work out the bugs and learn the new program.
