RFID Project Nears Completion

After nearly two years of planning and conversion the RFID project is nearing completion.

The old service window has been closed and will be replaced by an enclosure that will host two RFID selfchecks and an AMH (Automated Material Handler) that will checkin and sort materials.

To the right are bookshelves that will house items on reserve. The Welcome Desk will be removed and replaced by new book displays.

Technicians are scheduled to commence installation of the new security gates on October 24 with completion by the end of the week. We're all looking forward to a modern systems that's extremely reliable and easy to use!

AtoZ Rocks!

As I was reading a recent literary non-fiction title last night I came across the name of a fellow who had been married to Jerry Marks second wife, Mimi, back in the 1970s. I tried bringing him up on Google, but had far too many hits. So, I tried the WPL's AtoZ subscription--from home--and got a picture of the guy's house within seconds.

If you're trying to find addresses and phone numbers, your first stop should be AtoZ!

Power is on, Waterloo PL is open

Much of downtown Waterloo is without power this morning, but the WPL is lit up and will open as usual at 9:00 a.m.

Be careful when you come to see us as many traffic signals are still inoperable.

We're Back!


Professor Dargan tells me that you're looking at our blog and are disappointed by the lack of recent activity. We've moved on to other social networking venues such as Facebook (be sure to search for "Waterloo Public Library" on Facebook) and also have an interesting Virtual Reference service.

Try clicking the Virtual Reference link during business hours and ask the librarian on duty what the WPL has to offer to HCC students.
