Holds Changes @ East Library

| No TrackBacks

East Library 6.5.13 holdshelf1.JPGIn preparation for our move, the East Library will be making some changes to the way we handle holds. Starting on Monday, June 10, 2013, East will become unavailable to select in CountyCat as a pick-up location for holds.

What this means for you: If you placed a hold for pickup at East before June 10, and you receive a notification that it is ready for pickup, it will still be at East, and you still have five days to pick up your item. If there is something you want to request on or after that date, you will need to choose another library at which to pick it up. Here is a list of member libraries with a map.

On July 1, 2013, when we open the temporary East Library at 2430 N. Murray Ave, the holds system will go back to normal and East will once again be available to select in CountyCat as a pickup location. If you receive a notification that your items are ready for pick-up during the week that we are closed to the public (June 23 - June 30), they will be available starting July 1, after which you will still have the full five days to pick up your item.

Any questions? Ask us! The staff members at the East Library are happy to answer any questions you may have about the holds system or the move.

Library Meeting Rooms

| No TrackBacks

Did you know that Central Library and each neighborhood library has a meeting room that may be used free of charge by groups which meet the criteria set by the Milwaukee Public Library Board of Trustees? The rooms are available to all organizations “engaged in educational, cultural, intellectual, or charitable activities.”

The meeting rooms vary in size and number by agency. A group wishing to use a neighborhood library meeting room should contact the library of interest directly and ask for a Milwaukee Public Library Meeting Room Use Application to be filled out and approved before a room reservation is confirmed.
