Help us organize the new WCCLS website!

News & Events - Fri, 2015-04-17 13:06
Do you have a spare 10-20 minutes to help with the WCCLS website?  
 
Click here to complete the online survey and card sort.

The purpose of a card sort is to help us organize content on our website in a meaningful way, so that people can navigate it quickly and easily.  We are in the process of redesigning our website, and the information you provide will help create the structure of our new site.

During the card sort, you will be given a set of online cards to organize in a way that seems logical to you. There are no “right answers” in a card sort, but as a group we can see trends that will inform the navigation of our website.  The survey will close May 1.  Your participation is greatly appreciated!

"How to Start an Investment Club" program at the Tualatin Library

News & Events - Thu, 2015-04-16 11:00
The old adage "there's safety in numbers'' can be applied to investment clubs in more ways than one. An investment club is a group of individual investors who come together to learn, share investing experiences and help each other become more successful investors.

Thursday, April 23, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Tualatin Library Community Room
No prerequisites: anyone can learn how to invest for your future goals.

Clubs provide education, camaraderie and buying power, plus the confidence of knowing you don't have to go it alone. This workshop will review the ins and outs of starting an investment club and the advantages of learning and earning in a group.

Officers and members of the Portland, Oregon and SW Washington Chapter of Better Investing will present the workshops.

Updates to WCCLS catalog & account April 26-28

News & Events - Mon, 2015-04-13 08:30
Starting at 6:00 pm on Sunday, April 26th, the WCCLS catalog and accounts will be unavailable. This is because WCCLS will be performing software updates during this time. We anticipate that the catalog and accounts will become available sometime on Tuesday, April 28th.

Here's what you need to know:
  • No library materials will be due on Sunday, April 26th, Monday, April 27th, or Tuesday, April 28th
  • 3M Cloud  e-books will not be available during this time.
  • Follow WCCLS on Facebook and Twitter to get the most frequent updates about the downtime
  • When the catalog and accounts are available again, we will also announce it on our News & Events blog

What will be available during the software updates?

What will be different when the WCCLS catalog and accounts are updated?
This update adds functionality to the staff version of the library catalog, but you will not notice any significant changes with the look or performance of the public catalog or with your library account. 

Thanks in advance for your patience while we work to upgrade our catalog and account software! We apologize for the inconvenience.
