New Computer System Coming to the Library

Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Ridgefield Library and our partners in Bibliomation will be switching to a new computer automation system to provide our public access catalog, circulation functions and many behind-the-scenes operations.  The new system, called BiblioOak, will go live in the Library on Wednesday, June 1st.  This will necessitate some service reductions for a few days ahead of time.

Starting at 3 PM on Friday, May 27th through Monday the 31st, you will not be able to place holds or renew items online.  We will be open on Saturday the 28th but you will be able to check out items only upon presentation of a library card.  We will not be able to check in any items, accept fine payments or process holds.  Catalog status will not be updated, and there may be limitations on other services that rely on this system.

The Library will be closed for the holiday Sunday and Monday and will remain closed to the public on Tuesday the 31st while staff completes the transition.  When the new system goes online, staff will be happy to offer help with changes to the catalog and the My Account feature.

Check our website for details and updates on this process.  Thank you for your patience!
