Library to launch new catalog system
The library is upgrading to a new shared online catalog and checkout system (CARL) and will need to close Saturday, May 26, through Monday, May 28, to allow for millions of records to be transferred successfully.
During the closure, the library's current catalog will be unavailable and patrons will not be able to access their accounts, renew materials, or search the catalog for materials.
No materials will be due during the closure and downloadable content should still be accessible. All of the holds will carry over to the new system.
The library will open to the public at 2 pm Tuesday, May 29. The delayed opening will give the library time to ensure the migration has completed successfully.
The new catalog will only accept a PIN containing 4 to 6 numbers. If your PIN is longer or contains letters or special characters, please log in to your account to change your PIN, or contact the library to assist in making the change.
The new checkout and catalog system will offer easier searching with more relevant results, a youth catalog, innovative account management features, effortless integration with downloadable content, and a new mobile catalog.
Thank you for your cooperation as the library gets ready for the new system!
