MGPL has joined the Cooperative Computer Services (CCS) group, which has a shared online catalog with access to the holdings of 25 libraries in the northern Illinois area.
Joining CCS makes seeing and accessing material from these area libraries easier. It also gives us the opportunity to review many of the policies and procedures related to checking out library material, and look for ways to minimize barriers to using the Library. As a result, we are implementing new policies that we hope will make accessing library material easier.
Beginning on January 16, 2019, the new catalog system will automatically renew, up to 2 times, any physical items that are eligible for renewal and that are not reserved for another patron.
