  • Service Interruption Notice

    Dear Library Members,

    Please be advised that due to a major computer system upgrade, a series of service interruptions will occur from Monday June 15th to Mid-July.

    Unfortunately due to this upgrade the Reading History on all accounts will be lost. New reading history records will begin re-populating in the upgraded computer system after Wednesday June 24th.

    We strongly recommend that you print and save your existing reading history by June 20th. If you are unable to, please contact us and we will retrieve your reading history for you and send it to you via email. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this system upgrade - it is unfortunately unavoidable in this type of major system upgrade.

    Starting Tuesday, June 23rd there will be changes to our Notification System.
    New Service - these email notices will be sent for overdue items

    • 1 day overdue email notice
    • 7 day overdue email notice
    • 21 day overdue email notice + library charges bill

    During the transition to our new system, there will be some interruptions and inconsistencies in the notifications. Telephone Notifications in particular will be out of order from Monday 22nd to Monday 29th. We will make every effort to minimize disruptions, and we will not be charging overdue fees on items due between Monday June 22nd to Monday July 6th to ensure that you will not be penalized during this time.

    To check when a particular service will be unavailable, please refer to the service interruption timeline below. You are welcome to contact us for further assistance or information.
