• Courier routes combined

    WALTCO routes 1303 (St Croix & Dunn) and 1312 (Polk & St Croix) combined today (2/22/18) and possibly on Friday. 1303 libraries affected: Somerset, New Richmond, Roberts, Hammond, Baldwin, Woodville, Menomonie, Colfax, and Elk Mound. If your library has later delivery today, if you could let Maureen know the time you receive, that would help me track this combination. Thanks and if have questions, please contact Maureen/IFLS.

  • New automated telephone system running

    MORE's new automated telephone notification and renewal services have replaced their older counterparts as of Monday. Neither patrons or staff need to do anything differently, except expect to hear a new voice! Phone numbers have not changed. Please submit an IFLS help desk ticket if you hear of any problems.
