Temporary Library Closure begins Tuesday, May 22

The City of Winooski Memorial Library will be closed from Monday, May 21, 2018 through Tuesday, May 29, 2018 to manage a special content inventory and migration project.
Through a generous grant provided by The VT. Dept. of Libraries, The City of Winooski Memorial Library has received financial assistance to migrate to a new integrated catalog system called VERSO. This improved program will enable the Library to efficiently manage their physical and digital eContent resources and improve information discovery to the Library’s patrons. With VERSO, patrons (4,304 card holders!) be able to renew and reserve titles directly, and more easily request titles not available in the Winooski collection.
In order to successfully provide this service, the Library must undertake a comprehensive inventory and catalog migration. Staff will be using the week of May 21 to manage this project and thank our community members in advance for their patience during the temporary closure.
Regular Library hours will resume on Tuesday, May 29, 2018Click here to view the Library’s regular operating hours. Questions regarding this project and the Winooski Memorial Library can be sent to Library staff: 802 655 6424 winooskilibrary@winooskivt.org
No materials will be due during this time. We’ll be so glad to see you on Tuesday, May 29.
