On September 15th, the library system that Wilmette Public Library is a part of will be transitioning to a new catalog interface. Here are some important facts for you to know:
- My Lists and My Shelves will be private in the new catalog interface.
- The new catalog interface does not have social media elements.
- You will not need to set your account up again. You will access the new interface with your library barcode number and current password.
- If you've bookmarked the link to the current catalog interface, it will redirect you to our new interface on September 15th.
We are offering tutorials of the new interface for the public on September 15 at 2 pm and 7 pm and on September 16 at 2 pm. If you have any questions, please call the library at (847) 256-5025.
Two American classics–baseball and libraries–meet in this contest for all ages!
June 4-September 8, visit the Step Up to the Plate website for a weekly baseball trivia question. You will have one week to answer the question. If you get stuck, visit us for help!
All correct answers submitted each week will be entered into a weekly drawing for a prize package from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Each Monday, the week's winners will be posted on the @ your library Facebook page, and winners will be notified through the email address provided on the entry form.
Remember to come back each week to answer a new question. Every correct answer increases your chances of winning the grand prize: a trip for two to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum to attend the World Series Gala and a behind the scenes tour of the museum and archives in October 2012!
When you complete your weekly contest entry form, be sure to include the following library information.
