NEW COFFEE SHOP REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

The Brookings Public Library seeks proposals for the operation of a coffee shop within the Library, located at 515 Third Street.  The Library has housed a coffee shop on the second floor of the building in recent years and seeks a new service provider.  More information is available at http://cityofbrookings.org/bids.aspx?bidID=193  or contact Elvita Landau at 692-9407.

NEW LIBRARY SOFTWARE COMING SOON

The Library will be changing operating software in September.  Our new software is Library Solutions from The Library Corporation (TLC).

Among the features that attracted us to this software are

1)  the clean look and the ease of use of the public catalog

2)  a bright, cheerful kids’ catalog which includes AR information seamlessly

3)  an acquisitions (materials ordering) module that will allow the items to show up in the public catalog as soon as they are ordered and allow patrons to put holds on them right away

4)  the ability to integrate our ebook/eaudio services into your catalog search.

We will be closed to the public September 1st and 2nd to allow for final circulation and patron database transfer and for staff training.  We will open September 3rd – LIVE! - with our new software. 

No Interlibrary Loan requests will be processed until after September 3.

The move to new software is a major undertaking, but one that needed to be done to add functionality and to maintain the Library’s exemplary service to the community.

LIBRARY STORE OPEN

The Library Store is now open for young readers!  Time to spend those library bucks earned by reading in the Heroes Read! summer program.
