AHPL Resources Highlight
The Library has many great resources available to its patrons. Here are a few we've chosen to highlight.
MelCat Updates
Beginning April 1 to approximately July 1, 2018, library patrons will be unable to utilize MelCat to borrow materials. This is due to a migration to a new library automation system. During that time, we will make every effort to locate materials within our own TLN network of libraries. 
Discover Our New Catalog: Launching May 29
The Library will be closed May 26-28 to upgrade our catalog and checkout system. During this time:
  • No items will be due during the closure and no fines will accrue.
  • All of your holds will carry over to the new system.
  • You will not be able to access your account.
  • You will not be able to renew materials.
  • The catalog will not be available to search for materials.
