Library Closed Over the Weekend for System Upgrade

C/W MARS, the automated library network to which Northborough belongs, will be taking down the system on the weekend of Memorial Day, May 26-28 to install new software. Library users will still be able to see the catalog, but will not be able to place holds or access accounts. Any new books or DVDs that the library acquires after May 11 won’t show in the catalog. 

The new screens for the catalog will look very different, and the library "will help you get used to them, though they will be new to us, too!" 

There will be more search capabilities as compared with the old system. 

"If you routinely check your own record to see when your books are due, to renew your books, and to place books on hold, you will have a new log-in with your library card number and last name (in uppercase letters). You will be able to change your password after your first visit. If you want to keep your reading history and wish list, you need to download them before that weekend."
