Changes are coming to our library catalogs in Lincoln County. We are excited about all of the new things we will be able to do on new integrated library systems, which include the public catalog.
The Lincoln County Library District Board is currently in contract negotiation with ByWater Solutions, a company that provided services to libraries who decide to use the open source product, Koha, for their library system. We felt that this product and the services provided to us was not only the most cost effective solution for us but also the most dynamic. The new system is expected to be in place by July 1, 2012.
The libraries that are looking to be part of the Lincoln County Library District system are Toledo, Waldport, Siletz, Oregon Coast Community College and the Tillamook Bay Community College. We will be continuing to work very closely with the Newport, Driftwood (Lincoln City) and Tillamook County libraries in sharing all of our resources. The Library District courier van will continue to visit each library 4 times a week so that you can continue to return items to any library in the county.
We hope that the public will find our new catalogs that come with the change as exciting and useful as we do.
