To minimize impact to patrons, most of the work will be done between 5:00 and 8:30 AM. During this time, you may experience brief disruptions of web services, which should be resolved quickly. If you are unable to access any library web services, please wait a few minutes and try again. We don’t anticipate service disruptions during our regular hours of operation however, any issues will be addressed on a priority basis. <br /><br />The upgrade to cables and switches in our main network facility will allow us to monitor and address network issues more efficiently, minimizing future interruptions and downtime for patrons and staff. Thank you for your patience.
