Our New Catalogue, Encore, Is Up and Running

Accessing our new catalogue is easy.

Just click on the Catalogue button on our Home page. This will take you right to the Catalogue page.

One of the new features of our Catalogue is Catalogue Plus. Clicking on this tab when you search expands your search to include material from our Online Resources such as Databases. We hope this will make it easier for you to access this type of material to meet your information needs.

To log in to your account, you can either click on the Login button on the top of the Home page, or the Login button on the top of the Catalogue page. You will be prompted for your library card number and your PIN. Usernames are not currently supported as part of the login process in our new system.
To access features of your account once you have logged in, click on your name where it appears at the top of the screen.

Our telephone renewal service is working, but is not giving back the new due date for items. Unfortunately this is something that will be fixed early in the new year as part of an expected upgrade to the system. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Please do not hesitate to ask a staff member for assistance in navigating this new system. It's a big change and we're all learning together.
