Service interruption in the Library's Online Catalog – May 28 and May 29

The Library will be performing maintenance on our catalog starting at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, May 28 - 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 29. During this time, you will be able to search the Bibliocommons catalog, but will not be able to log in, place holds, renew items or use other catalog features. The former Library catalog (Horizon Information Portal), SPL Mobile, access to e-books, free music downloads and many databases and applications also will be unavailable.

My First Library Card

To celebrate children getting their first Library card, children age 0 - 6 will receive a special "My First Library Card" tote bag. These bags were specifically chosen to fit picture books and still accommodate young Library patrons.

My First Library Card tote bag

Pick one up when your early learner gets their Library card at any Library location, while supplies last.
