We’re Switching Library Catalog Systems

Later this month, TFPL (along with our other LYNX consortium libraries) will be migrating to an entirely new catalog system. All of our records – for items as well as for patrons – will be switched over, and that basically involves pausing all of our processing in one system so we can move everything to the new one. Starting Thursday, May 19, we’ll enter what we’re jokingly calling “Dead Week” – a week in which you won’t be able to place holds or pay fines, but you will still be able to check items in and out. This will last (fingers crossed!) until Wednesday, May 25 when we go live with our new ILS.

Because of this change, the catalog links to our blog posts prior to this one will be considered lost links. Sorry! We may not be able to restore all those links in the near future, but the information is still relevant. This also means we won’t be posting catalog links until after May 25, but look for even more fun reading suggestions after that date. We’re excited to see what the new system has to offer!
