Changes are Coming
Wednesday, March 13, 2013Forsyth Public Library will soon have a new circulation system. We will be part of SHARE, thought to be the largest library automation consortium in the country. This consortium will have 427 member libraries and more than 9.5 million items available for request. As we prepare for SHARE to go live on April 9, there are a few things you need to know.
• March 15 is the last day to place holds on materials in the old system. New requests will not be accepted till April 9.
• Any requests that have not been filled by Friday, March 22 will disappear from your record, as will any personal lists. Print out a copy before this date so you can request them again after April 9. We will be happy to help you with this.
• Library cards are required for checkout from April 1-9. Make sure yours is ready! We will not be able to renew cards or issue new ones during this time. We will be using a very limited version of our new system and will not be able to look up patron information.
Please contact the library with any questions or to request help printing your requests.
