The Fossil Ridge Public Library (Braidwood) reopened on Monday, November 14th, after an extensive renovation project at the main library. The library resumed filling from the paging list on Tuesday, and patrons can once again pickup their materials at the library. The staff at Fossil Ridge have expressed their appreciation for everyone's patience and assistance during their construction project.
Congratulations to the Richard A. Mautino Memoiral Library (RAMG-8) who will be "going live" today!
Richard A. Mautino ML started adding their collection to PrairieCat in August 2015 and is the latest in a increasing number of existing union listing members that has upgraded its level of PrairieCat membership to basic online.
Congratulations to the community of Spring Valley and best of luck to Library Director Barb White and the library staff!!
This month’s tip explains how Frozen Holds work in Encore / Sierra. The Frozen Holds document includes how patrons can freeze a hold in their account, and tips for staff on when holds can’t be frozen, reminders to share with patrons to manage their holds better, and how to remedy a hold that has been frozen too long.
Two PrairieCat libraries are closing for building/remodeling projects in upcoming weeks. PrairieCat staff are making adjustments to Sierra to suspend their paging lists (lending) while they are closed, and delivery to the libraries will be adjusted. Patrons may be changing pickup locations to neighboring libraries during these closures. Thank you for your patience and assistance to patrons during these closures.
