Cedar Vale Library will soon be automated! Yes I said automated. No more of those pesky cards, it will all be computerized. We plan on being completely automated and going “live” around the middle of May. When that happens you will have access to the books, movies, and the other collections of 23 other libraries in our system, including Iola, Independence, Coffeyville, Chanute, and many others. From the comfort of your own home you will be able to go on to the KOHA website from our web page (http://cedarvale.mykansaslibrary.org), log in and search the collections of all the libraries in our consortium. Then you can put a hold on that item or items and it will be sent through a courier service to Cedar Vale Library and will arrive the next day or the day after depending on when you place a hold on it. Then you will be notified it has arrived at Cedar Vale Library and you can come pick it up! For more information you can contact Katie Boyle at email@example.com or at 620-758-2598.
