We are transitioning to a new catalog system. While the new system will bring many improvements to our patrons and staff alike, it will involve some temporary interruptions of service. We regret the inconvenience and thank your for your patience as we complete this transition.

What's happening and when?

  • Online access to your account will be frozen after 9 pm on August 16

  • Holds placed prior to August 16th will continue to be processed

  • Patrons will be able to borrow WPL materials through in-person, phone, or email requests only between August 17 and 22*

  • All holds will be frozen between August 17 and 22*

  • Requesting holds online and online access to your account will reopen in the new system on or around August 23*

  • We will not be able to check in items during the transition period so all due dates are extended to August 31. 

  • Access to SearchOhio and OhioLINK will be unavailable from August 16 until an estimated restart date of September 7*

What do I need to know about using the new online catalog?

  • Know your library card number! Your current username/alternate ID will not transfer to the new system.

  • Your PIN will be reset to the last 4 digits of the phone number on file with your account.

    New Catalog - Sneak Peek

    We’re so excited for you to meet the library’s new online card catalog system. This catalog is designed from the ground up to help you find everything offered in one easy-to-search website. Never before have our patrons been able to search so many different resources at one time. We know you’re going to love it.

    Check out some images below that give you a little sneak peek before the new WPL online catalog launches on August 23.
