Texarkana Public Library to Close For Several Days
On Monday May 13th, the Texarkana Library Commission approved a resolution to temporarily close the library during a total system migration.
The servers that house all the library records, which are currently onsite at the library, will be moved to a cloud based server.
During the library closure, the staff will be verifying that migrated data is correct, and they will be training on the new system to ensure a seamless transition when the library re-opens to the public.
The Texarkana Public Library will be closed Monday, May 20th through Wednesday, May 22nd to install the new library system. Renewal of materials, the online catalog, and remote access to Library databases and accounts will be unavailable. The Library will reopen at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 23rd, 2013.
Beginning May 23th, the public will be able to access a new online public access catalog (OPAC) which will have a new look, advanced searching features, the ability to access a library account, and pay fines through PayPal.
Items due on May 20th through May 23rd will be due on May 24th and no fines will be accrued.
