Library will close Tuesday for work

Published 1:01 am Sunday, November 6, 2011

The Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library will be closed Tuesday while staff work to upgrade its computer system and install new servers.

Library director Deb Mitchell said the upgrade will give patrons the ability to use a mobile application for iPhone and Android smartphones to access the library’s catalog.

The improvements include an updated look to the catalog interface patrons see on library computers, as well as text messaging for item availability and overdue notices and an auto-suggest functionality to make searches quicker and easier.

The server replacement and upgrade projects have been made possible through a $20,000 Library Services and Technology Act grant, said Mitchell, with 25 percent of the cost matched from the library’s budget.

The library will reopen as usual at 9 a.m. Wednesday.
