Apollo and OverDrive

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 jbrown@millingtonlibrary.info (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.
