Did you know library users made 19.8 million searches in our online catalog last year? It's true! The online catalog at wccls.org is the primary gateway to our physical and digital collections, so WCCLS and its member libraries are working to create an online catalog experience that is as welcoming and enriching as what you encounter in our library buildings.
The countdown to the new catalog begins November 4, and it will officially launch on November 14. Follow along on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and wccls.org to join us on this new venture, and get ready to take your online library experience to new heights!
Developing new community leaders
Are you a Washington County resident? Do you have a passion for civic leadership and engagement? Do you identify as a person of color or other underrepresented group? The Civic Leaders Project, presented by Washington County and Adelante Mujeres, is your opportunity to get hands-on leadership training, learn how to participate in the civic life of the county, and engage in county decision making.
Training sessions will be on Saturdays, January 26 - March 2, with childcare, meals, and transit passes provided. The project wraps up with a visit to a County Board of Commissioners meeting. Those interested can apply online and find more information from Washington County and Adelante Mujeres.
Looking for the latest from The New York Times but hitting their monthly article limit? A WCCLS library card is your ticket to Timesreporting, past and present. Through WCCLS, you can get 72-hour passes to the Times online and dig deep into the news. That means access to their archives and no limits on the number of articles read.
