Library system software will change during the Memorial Day Weekend
Hopkinton Public Library along with other neighboring libraries in the CW/MARS network, will be changing to an updated library system called the “Evergreen.” It means that the online library catalog that you use to search for library materials, check status of items and place holds will look and work a bit differently. The new system is expected to be up and running as of May 29, 2012.
Please remember the following as we prepare for the change:
Library Closing: The library will close at 5 pm in Friday, May 25th and will re-open on Tuesday, May 29th. Our Library System will NOT be accessible during this time.
Current PIN/Password: When you login to the new catalog on May 29, your old password will not be effective. Use the barcode on your library card to log in. Your NEW password will be your last name in UPPER CASE.
Reading History and Current Wish List: Your current reading history and/or wish lists will not be moved to Evergreen. If this information is important to you, remember to export it prior to May 25. There is an “Export List” button to choose at the top of the list. Then select the “Brief Display” option and send to your e-mail address or print it.
The “Evergreen” library system offers many new features such as easily searching all network libraries in the Central and Western Mass. and the ability to share reading lists and recommendations with others. For more information please feel free to contact us
