Library Director Deborah Wunsch and her staff are excited to announce that the Elizabeth Township PL is reopening today following a 3-week closure for painting and the installation of new carpeting. Before the work could begin the building was emptied, not a trash can was left! The only fixtures left in the building were the shelving units that are attached to the exterior walls and the light fixtures and ceiling fans.
All PrairieCat members receive an allocation of free original catalogings by PrairieCat catalogers each year. The number of catalogings allocated is based on your membership level. Libraries in the process of completing a membership upgrade get additional free catalogings while they are completing that process. The list of FY16 original cataloging allotments is now posted on the support website.
PrairieCat will begin using a new software for our support Help Desk as of Monday, August 24. The software is called OTRS. Please see the attached handout on how to use OTRS. The URL for the new Help Desk is:
During the week of August 10, 2015 the RAILS IT Department upgraded the phone system used by the PrairieCat Support staff. A number of new features were added to the system that we are sure you will find useful and helpful.
The Elizabeth Township Library (ELLY) will be closed from Monday, August 10 to September 1 for building renovations. ETL will not be filling holds during this time as their collection will be inaccessible.
Library Director Deborah Wunsch and her staff appreciate everyone’s patience while they are closed. Items being returned to ELLY will be held at the RAILS Rockford Service Center until delivery to the library resumes.
