Big changes are coming to the Library to serve you better




In May, the Library will be joining Cooperative Computer Services (CCS) to enhance our service to you. Our membership in CCS will provide:

1. A new and improved Library catalog, called Bibliocommons, with the ability to search across 24 area libraries, create item lists and bookshelves, share with your friends and family, write book reviews, and more.

2.  Immediate access to the the shared resources of all of the member libraries. You can place holds anywhere in the system and pick your materials up at any of the libraries.

3. Online payment of fines with the implementation of the E-Pay system.

4. Your Highland Park Public Library card will be immediatedly usable at any CCS member library without additional registration.

We are pleased to be able to offer these services to you. To facilitate our move to CCS, the Library will be closed on May 8. Your library account information will be unavailable on May 7 and special circulation rules will apply on that day. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, but we hope to see you on May 9 at the "new and improved" Highland Park Public Library.
