Starting July 5, 2016 the Auburn Public Library will be using a new statewide system called Polaris. All Patrons, current and new, will have to come in with their up to date driver’s license and register for a new library card. With this new system come many benefits for Patrons. This includes access to over 10,000,000+ items from libraries all over the state. Patrons will now have online access to their accounts. This access from home allows them to request items, check to see if items are in, and to renew. Patrons will also be able to check out items from any library and return them here. Another benefit is Patrons will now receive notifications for items that are due back and for items that are already overdue.
If there are any questions please contact the Auburn Public Library at 217/438-6211
Libraries in the Lewis & Clark Digital Consortium are delighted to announce the consolidation of our eBook collections to one platform! The Cloud Library is now our exclusive platform for eBooks and downloadable audiobooks.
If you have been using the Lewis & Clark Digital Consortium (Overdrive) for eBooks and downloadable audiobooks through your local library, please be aware that this service is migrating to the Cloud Library effective July 1, 2016; the links you use to access this collection will no longer work after that date. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause. But know that all the titles that were available in the Overdrive consortium remain available to you. Also be aware that the migration will take a few weeks for the titles formerly available through Overdrive to appear in the Cloud Library.
Items checked out or placed on hold by patrons in Overdrive will not transfer over to the Cloud Library. Patrons will need to recheck out any unfinished titles or replace their holds in the Cloud.
More information will be posted over the next month!
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our phones. We apologize for the inconvenience.
