2/23-24: WCCLS Catalog will be Down

screenshot, new library search formThe library catalog and patron accounts will be unavailable the evening of Monday, February 23 through the afternoon of Tuesday, February 24, 2009. WCCLS will be upgrading Polaris, the county’s integrated library system, at that time.

Here’s what this means to you—for Monday night and Tuesday morning and afternoon:
  • You won’t be able to find books, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs, and other library materials.
  • You won’t be able put holds on library materials.
  • You won’t be able to view your library account.
  • You won’t be able to renew library materials either online or by telephone.

You will be able to access online resources and electronic databases, Library2Go, and other information on the WCCLS website.

If you have questions, please contact or visit your local Washington County library. You can find the phone numbers in Your Libraries.

We will have the system back up and running as soon as we can.

In the meantime, take a look at the features available in the new version of the library catalog including how it looks, how to find what you’re looking for, and changes in your library account record—you'll even be able to create—and keep—as many title lists as you’d like.

Your patience during the downtime is appreciated.
