On October 1st, 2013, the Groton Public Library will join the other 36 existing members of the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium!
Groton had previously been a stand-alone library, so their patrons will now have easy access to the collections of all MVLC libraries.
It also means that Chelmsford patrons (and all other MVLC patrons), will be able to request items from the Groton Library, as well as use the Groton Library as a pick-up location, or a place to return items. If you work in Groton or live not to far from their library, this could make it much easier to use library items. Items from Groton's collection will also now start filling holds for other library patrons too, which means items you're waiting for might come quicker.
Patrons will start seeing Groton items, and Groton listed as a pickup location, in the Evergreen catalog on Tuesday, October 1st. If you have any questions about MVLC or member libraries, please contact the Reference Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521. Welcome to MVLC, Groton!Posted in Current News, Library Information | No Comments »

The online catalog the library uses for ebooks and downloadable audiobooks, called Overdrive, updated its website with a new look this weekend. If you haven't already, please check it out at http://mvlc.lib.overdrive.com.
There is an online guide that introduces all the new features, and new printed guidelines will be ready soon. A few important changes to note are:
The new look only applies to the website - people using the mobile app will not notice any change. If you use Internet Explorer 7 you will need to download the Google Chrome plug-in to display the page correctly, as that version of the browser does not support all the features of the new layout. Alternatively you could update to the latest version of the browser.
If anyone has any questions please contact the Reference Desk.Posted in Current News, Overdrive | No Comments »
The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is researching whether or not a state-wide library card (a single card that would work in every library in the state) would be of interested to residents of Massachusetts.
In order to gauge interest, and expectations, of a state-wide library card, the MBLC is asking that everyone please fill out a short survey and let them know what you think:
The idea of a state-wide library card grew out of the MBLC's Resource Sharing Committee, which is trying to identify ways to improve library services and better allocate budget funds to best benefit Massachusetts library patrons. Your input will definitely help in their efforts. Thanks!Posted in Current News | No Comments »
