The Giver Party originally planned for August 7 is cancelled due to low enrollment.
Some of you may have already noticed that some items in our catalog now say “No Hold Allowed”. This change occurred July 22 when Lakeshores Library System (the system Waterford belongs to) began the initial steps of separating from Mid-Wisconsin Federated Library System. What does this mean to you? Patrons can no longer place holds or request items from Washington, Dodge, or Jefferson county libraries through the SHARE catalog. These items can still be requested through WISCAT catalog. There is now a link to the WISCAT catalog on the right hand side of our website.
When searching for items, please check the SHARE catalog first. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, click the link to the WISCAT catalog. The login is in the top right-hand corner. Your login information is the same: the number on the back of your library card is your user ID and your pin is the last four digits of your phone number (if you have a Waterford card). The search and “hold” or “request” functions are the same. It just may take a little longer than in the past.
If you placed a hold on an item from a Mid-Wisconsin library before July 22, that hold will be honored and sent to you as before. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please call or e-mail us and we’ll be happy to help you. Thank you for your understanding.
