What do you think of our catalog?

Bridges Library System wants to know what you think of our catalog. Next time you’re in the Library, stop by the survey station (near the Adult Reference Desk) to complete a short questionnaire. We will use the information collected to help us improve the catalog for everyone. You may also take the survey HERE. It will be available until January 25, 2019.

Sandhill Cranes

Last week, the Library installed a new piece of public art into our permanent collection. Sandhill Cranes by Tom Rauschke is a wooden mobile installed in the north atrium to fill that space with form, color, and movement. Stop in and take a look at this breathtaking piece.

Loan Limits Changed!

Exciting news! Starting today, there are no more loan limits on Library AV items, magazines, or pamphlets. What does that mean? Each Library card can have up to 125 items checked out on it from our collection. If you want to check out 125 DVDs, go ahead! Love CDs? Take home as many as you want! As long as you have 125 items or less checked out on your card, you can take home whatever materials you’d like. The only items that still have loan limits are: Laptops (1), Hotspots (1), Book Group Kits (2) and Launchpads (1). Please check with the Reference or Circulation Desks if you have any questions. The number of holds allowed per card is still 40.

Pay Your Fines Online!

If you owe fines of $5.00 or more, you can now pay them online! Just log into your CAFE account and click on “Pay Fines Now!” This option only appears if you owe $5.00 or more. A 5% service fee applies. You can also still pay at the Library, just like before.
