[updated March 18: The district libraries are updating the library software program beginning today; the data migration should occur during the weekend and the new system set up early next week. Librarians will be attending training next Thursday and Friday, March 24 and 25. Due to this training the Robinson Library will not open until 10am on Thursday and will be closed all day on Friday.]
[updated March 3: Many thanks to the Board of Trustees for approving the purchase of the new Follett Destiny software!]
The school district is very close to having the purchase of a web-based library management system approved by the School Board. All six library media specialists and the high school teacher librarian have been meeting monthly with Ms. Gerger, the district's Teacher on Special Assignment, to discuss and decide the merits of upgrading the library OPAC (online public access catalog) system. By upgrading to Follett Destiny, our students, staff, and parents will be able to access all district library holdings online. The web-based interface will promote library-to-classroom-to-home learning. If the purchase is approved at the March 2 board meeting, the new system will be implemented in mid-March and functionality should be available by late-March.

Your comment will be posted after it is approved.
