Happy Thanksgiving! The Library will be closed Thurs., Nov. 28 and Fri., Nov. 29 in observeance of Thankskgiving.
LINKcat, the online library catalog, will be offline for a scheduled software update beginning at 9 p.m. on Friday Dec. 6 and ending on Tuesday Dec. 10.
This will affect all public libraries in the seven-county South Central Library System. During this offline period, due dates on library items will be extended to ensure minimal impact for library patrons. Additionally, there will be no overdue fines incurred during this four day period. Patrons may still visit their local library to check out and return items during regular hours of operation. Patrons will not have access to the catalog to place new holds, but will be able to pick up existing holds.
Library patrons can use the library’s 24/7 eBook and eAudiobook collections through Wisconsin’s Digital Library at wplc.overdrive.com. Library staff will also be available to help patrons locate materials on their shelves. Once the update is complete patrons will be able to use LINKcat to access the same services as before. While there will be changes to the look of the site, they will be minimal.
Inclement Weather Policy -
For the safety of both patrons and staff, it is the policy of the Mazomanie Free Library that the library will close when Wisconsin Heights schools close due to inclement weather. Evening and Saturday closings are at the discretion of the librarian on duty. However, if staff can safely travel, the library may be open for limited hours even when the schools are closed. Call the library at 608-795-2104 before venturing out.
No More Overdue Fines -
As of June 1, 2019, the Mazomanie Free Library no longer charges overdue fines on items checked out at this library. All past overdue fines on items checked out at this library are also being waived. Please bear in mind that you may still incur overdue fines from other libraries. Charges for lost or damaged items still apply.
