Library Tech Workshop-Thursday at 6:00pm

Just a reminder, the EHLS Online Services How-To is Thursday, Feb 19 at 6:00pm


With EHFPL and Rathbun both part of LION, the library computers can talk to one another, which makes things much more convenient for you. There is now a single library catalog that can tell you at a glance which library has the items you are looking for and if they’re available. You can order books from any LION library and select a pickup location. If you access the online catalog, you’re able to see all of your library items in one place and renew them with a single click. Any materials checked out in town can be returned to either branch. They will be marked returned, and you won’t owe any fines or fees (as long as the materials are on time).  It is also be easier to return, renew, and request items at each library. Users of both libraries are certainly in for a treat, while folks who prefer one library will be able to access the other library’s resources for the first time. 

All online services are accessible via the Library Blogs (http://EHFPL.Blogspot.com and http://RathbunLibrary.Blogspot.com).The staff are happy to help you with any issues you might be having. Library Director, Mike Gilroy is also available by appointment to help you with any computer issues. If you’re looking for something a bit more formal, there will be special LION Information Sessions in February & March. 

The EHLS Online Services How-To will be offered at each library on the following dates: 
Monday, Feb. 16 at 6:00pm at EHFPL and
