A new app that puts the library on your smartphone is among the initiatives in a major upgrade of Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s online library system. The new system is expected to be up and running on Friday, April 30, and will allow users to:

• More easily search the library online catalogue, including successful searching with misspelt words and easy-to-use filters;
• Reserve an item without having to enter your details each time;
• Renew all books with a single click;
• Receive an alert if you need to return items;
• Find eBooks, see if they are available and place holds in the library catalogue;
• Build and manage wish lists;
• Join the library instantly online;
• Reset PINs online; and,
• Receive SMS notifications of holds.

Libraries will be closed on Thursday, April 29, to allow staff to complete the transfer to the new system, but library chutes will remain open. There will also be some disruption to the library’s usual services between April 22-28, during which time you will not be able to reserve or renew items nor access your online account information. Staff will be unable to process returns; you are welcome to return items to the library but they will not be removed from your card until April 29. You will only be able to borrow from the self-loan stations with your library card, and anyone joining the library for the first time will initially be restricted to borrowing four items.

Staff will also only be able to migrate the last two years of a member’s reading history to the new system. If you would like to keep your entire reading history, you’ll need to complete these steps before April 22: log into your account details online; select the History of Loans table information; right-click and select Copy; open an Excel/Google sheet/Word document; right-click and select Paste.

It will be business as usual from April 30, at which time the libraries will also return loan periods to 21 days for all items except magazines, which are for seven days. For more information, visit
