Computer Update Scheduled for June 22

On Wednesday, June 22, the library will be having a new server installed.  This means that the circulation and catalog system will be unavailable for staff and patrons.  The process is expected to take at least 4 hours, but may be more. 

During this time, we will need to have special guidelines for checking out materials.  There will be a 10-item limit and only Westland residents will be able to check out provided they have their library card and picture identification with them.

You will be able to go on the Internet during this time.

We appreciate your cooperation during this time as we are working to improve our services.
