On May 26, 2017, we are launching our new catalog, Polaris. The new system will allow us to provide you with improved services such as:
Easier, more powerful searching.
Enhanced account features that allow you to:
- Create a username instead of using your library card number to log in.
- Recover or reset your PIN if you forget it.
- Keep a list of items you check out in the new system.
Holds pickup for accounts that are linked together.
To complete the transition to Polaris, all branches will be closed on May 25. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
These changes take place May 19-25. During this time:
You can continue to check out items, but you must bring your library card to check out.
You will not be able to:
- Access your account.
- Place holds.
- Renew items in person, on the phone or online.
- Pay outstanding fines and fees.
Existing cardholders can continue to access the Library's computers and online resources, such as OverDrive, Zinio and ReferenceUSA.
No library materials will be due from May 19 to June 1. Late fees will not accrue during this period.
If you have items saved to "My List" in your current account, please print or email it to yourself. It will not transfer to the new system.
The availability of titles with late May and June publication dates will be delayed as we move orders and accounts to the new system.
Please see staff if you have questions.
All DeKalb County Public Library branches will be closed Sunday, May 28 and Monday, May 29, 2017 in observance of Memorial Day.
