Catalog and account will be unavailable

Posted: Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 9:56 am

In early April, our catalog and account system will be unavailable, but for a great reason!

Three more libraries are joining the Central Library Consortium (CLC): Bexley Public Library, London Public Library and Upper Arlington Public Library! As a result, you will soon have access to 4.5 million books, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs when using your Worthington Libraries library card.

But in order to make this change and process data from our new partners, we need to restrict and stop some services for a short time.

From Thursday, April 3 at 9pm to Wednesday, April 9 at 9am:

  • My account will not be available on or our mobile app— you won't be able to log in to renew items, check reserves or pay fines
  • The library catalog will operate with limited functionality— you won't be able to reserve items and item availability will not be accurate
  • Returned items cannot be checked in by staff— any items you return will remain on your account
  • The online library card application will not be available— you may apply for a new library card at the accounts desk
  • Interlibrary loan will not be available— online requests will not be processed
  • Self-check out machines will be available and staff can check out items for you— you will need to bring your library card since staff members will be unable to look it up
  • Due dates will be extended— your items will not be due and fines will not accrue
  • Public computers will be available and you will also have access to all the library's online resources, including popular services such as hoopla, Zinio and eBooks

When the library catalog and account system come back up on April 9, you will be able to seamlessly access the collections of all 14 libraries in the CLC.
