Thank you for your patience while the WCCLS catalog and online accounts were unavailable for software updates! We are now back up and running as usual.

If you are seeing any odd behavior with the catalog or account, please clear your browser's cache. We aren't expecting any problems, but this should resolve any issues. We have information about clearing your browser's cache on your desktop computer and your mobile device on our website.

If your browser is not storing your WCCLS barcode and PIN when you log in to your account, clear your browser's cache (see above for info), and then adjust your browser's settings for saving login information. You'll find that at the bottom of this page on the WCCLS website.

If you want to get deeper into some features of the catalog, we have videos on creating saved searches in the desktop catalog (these alert you to new items added that match your search), as well as creating and managing lists of saved titles.

Catalog and account software will be down starting Sunday night until Tuesday

News & Events - Fri, 2015-04-24 08:30
We will be posting more frequent updates about the catalog and account availability on Facebook and Twitter.

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.

Help us organize the new WCCLS website!

News & Events - Thu, 2015-04-23 13:19
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! 

Tualatin Teen Librarian Wins State Award

News & Events - Thu, 2015-04-23 10:20
Congratulations to Aimee Meuchel, Tualatin Public Library Teen Librarian, for receiving the OYAN You’re Excellent Award at the 2015 Oregon Library Association conference. The Oregon Young Adult Network [OYAN] gives this award to recognize an individual or organization that has made a positive and significant contribution to teens in Oregon libraries.

In their letters nominating Meuchel for the award, Tualatin teens shared these comments about Meuchel:

"It was because of Aimee that I began to actively seek out leadership opportunities and become more involved in my community. Without her guidance and support throughout the years, I would have never grown out of my shell or realized how much I enjoy helping others."
"Aimee is always smiling and having fun, which influences me and some other teens to smile and have fun with life, because you can't let the past or a bad day bring you down and ruin fun. ... Aimee honestly has the most creative mind in the world, and is the funnest person I have met."

"I have learned from her the meaning of leadership and responsibility ... and she taught me to trust myself. ... I have never met someone older than me that understands how teens feel; she relates to us, and that is why she is a friend to me."

"I would never have become to person I am today if it weren't for talking to that special little red-haired librarian."
Meuchel has worked at the Tualatin Library since 2006, starting as a Children's Librarian. When the Tualatin Library was expanded in 2008, Meuchel became Tualatin's first Teen Librarian and was instrumental in the development of the Library's dedicated Teen Room.   Because of Meuchel's efforts, Tualatin Library has a highly successful teen program. The Library presents more than 200 programs for teens each year, including weekly drop-in gaming and movie nights. The Teen Room regularly has more than 600 visits each month.

As part of the award, Meuchel received an engraved plaque and a monetary donation of $100 to support teen services at the Tualatin Public Library.
