• Sierra maintenance updates Our vendor is applying fairly frequent "maintenance updates" to our system, the most recent one being overnigh Wednesday to Thursday (April 19-20). If you notice a message about an update at the bottom of your Sierra session when you open it, please try to open Sierra on one computer at a time at your library. These udpates should not take long to complete. -Lori 04/20/2017 - 12:16pm
  • Serials and "Verifier Error" There is a problem with editing and deleting some serials (magazine) records in Sierra: users get a "Verifier Error - Field group does not have pattern field(s)" message. This problem is expected to be fixed next week. I'll post an updade when the fix is in place. -Lori 04/19/2017 - 3:01pm

smiling adult and child reading togetherThese kits are available to all IFLS public libraries.  They are designed for preschool and primary grade audiences, and each has many materials from which to pick and choose.  To reserve a kit or to schedule several kits for a story hours series, contact Leah.  Many of these kits were extensively updated in 2014 with funds from a Library Services and Technology Act Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  Daycares and Headstart programs interested in borrowing kits need to contact their local public library.  To find out contents of each kit, click on it.
