  • Update: Automated Telephone Notice and Renewal System Still Down

    MORE's automated telephone notice system (sometimes called TNS or Teleforms) and the telephone renewal service are not working as of sometime Thursday (7-4). Unfortunately, I don't know when it will be working again, but the problem (a failed harddrive) is actively being addressed. To avoid a delay in sending notices, please use the second option listed in my email to MORE-member library staff on Friday (7-5). Please submit a help desk ticket with questions or problems. -Lori

Sharing Performers

 It's a great idea to share performers--saves on travel costs and often performers give a special break if they can have several gigs in one or two days.  If you want to suggest sharing a performer to all youth services librarians in the system, send a note to the youth services list.
