FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The nine libraries of the Municipal Library Consortium (MLC), which includes all three libraries in the Webster Kirkwood Times service area—Kirkwood, Rock Hill, and Webster Groves Public Library—are getting a new computer system in December. Starting December 10, the library catalog you use when you visit any of these libraries, either in person or from home, will be totally new.
There are exciting features in the new catalog which will make your library experience easier, more productive, and more secure. With the new MLC catalog you will be able to:
· Search smarter with easy sorting, filtering and spelling correction
· Create a username for online account access
· Get notified when favorite authors write new books
· Pay fines online
· Keep checkout history
· Get text or e-mail receipts of all the items you check out
· And much more
From December 4 to 9, the MLC libraries will experience mild service interruptions as they make the changeover to the new system. You may still visit the library to check out books and other materials, but you will not be able to place holds, pay fines, or ask your library to look up your card number. During these days, you will need to bring your library card to the library to check out anything or use a computer.
If you have any questions, please call your library: Kirkwood (314-821-5770), Rock Hill (314-962-4723), or Webster Groves (314-961-3784).
About Kirkwood Public Library:
For nearly 75 years, the Kirkwood Public Library has been a warm and welcoming place for the Kirkwood community. What began as one room full of books on the top floor of City Hall has grown into a three-story building housing a wide collection of all types of materials.
