The dates of the Spring and Fall Friends’ book sales have been set: April 25th – 27th and November 7th – 9th. We’ll post more details as those dates get closer.
Beginning January 2nd, 2013 you will able to reserve books from your account in our catalog at http://catalog.ccfls.org. Once you log in with your library card number and password (the default password is your last name, you can change it after you log in) just click the Place Hold button from the item’s record. If the item is not a type that can be reserved there will be no Place Hold button.
If we have your email address and your messaging settings are set to send you an email when a hold is filled, you will get an email notification when the item you requested is waiting for you. You can change your messaging settings after you log into your account under the My Messaging tab. If you choose to receive email notifications of your holds there is no charge; if you still prefer to receive notifications in the mail you will still have to pay the reserve fee.
If we have your email address on record you will find it on your account under My Personal Details. If you need to change the address stop by the circ desk the next time you’re in the library.
