  • On Saturday, March 21, 2015, 5:30 p.m. through Sunday, March 22, 2015, 12:00 p.m., the library will upgrade a server. Due to the work involved all online services will be unavailable during this time. This includes our online catalog, the "My Account" feature, and any databases which require access using a library card and PIN. No library material will be due Friday 3/20 through Tuesday 3/24. We apologize for any inconvenience.
  • Due to this upgrade, patrons using Windows XP may need to use a browser other than Internet Explorer 9 to access the online catalog. Our vendor suggests FireFox or Google Chrome. Users running Windows 7 or 8 may need to upgrade their Internet Explorer to version 10 or later. The library has a short brochure at the front desk showing how to add a different browser to Windows XP.
