A NEW LIBRARY CATALOG IS ON THE WAY!
Exciting news! The library is moving to a new library management system on February 26, 2024. This means a new catalog with improved search functionality is coming your way! Additionally, some account settings will change. Here are some of the changes you can expect beginning February 26, 2024:
LOGGING INTO YOUR ACCOUNT
You will still log into your account using your library card number. However, each library account will have a new PIN/Password. Your new PIN/Password will be the last four digits of your phone number beginning February 26, 2024. If you have trouble logging in, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be here to help you.:)
CHANGING YOUR PIN/PASSWARD
Once logged in beginning February 26, 2024, you may change your PIN/Password by going to the Account Settings → Reset PIN/Password. Use a four-digit number. You will use this number on the catalog, at the self-checkout in the library, and on the Libby app.
Unfortunately, with this transition, if you had previously opted into recording your reading/checkout history, your history will not migrate to the new system. If you want to keep your current history, you must export the list by copying & pasting it into a digital document by February 25, 2024. After this date, all reading history not saved will be lost. If you need help saving your checkout history, we are happy to help! Request a tech appointment today!
OPTING INTO RECORDING YOUR READING HISTORY
Once we transition to the new system on February 26, 2024, you may opt into recording your reading history by logging into your account and selecting “Reading History.” Select “Start Recording My Reading History” to turn on this feature. You may stop recording the history at any time.
We thank you for your continued patronage of the Waterloo Public Library. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we transition over to this new system.
