CCRLS Member Library Patrons,
We need to make you aware of an ongoing service disruption to the CCRLS Mobile app on Apple or Android devices that so many of you use.
On 11/26/23 the app became inoperable. We have since learned this is due to the unexpected withdrawal of technical support from one of the app developers.
We are actively exploring replacement options with our system vendor and apologize for the confusion, frustration and inconvenience this situation may be causing.
For those who do not know, this app has provided search access to our member library collections and the ability to place and remove holds as well as other functions.
In the meantime, please note that our online catalog remains available and is fully functional. For additional service please contact your home library.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we look for a solution.
Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library Service
CCRLS is pleased to announce that Ancestry (a genealogist favorite) is temporarily available remotely, thanks to the generosity of our vendor(s); requires a valid CCRLS library card. Just one more thing you can do from home during these unusual & challenging times.
CCRLS services all of the interlibrary loan (ILL) borrowing requests generated at our member libraries. In light of COVID-19 library closures, locally & throughout the country, we are temporarily suspending that service. We will resume this activity as local libraries re-open and external libraries re-establish their ability to lend/send materials.
In response to COVID19-related library closures, CCRLS is temporarily extending hold expiration dates. Active holds which are filled will still transit to the pickup library you specify. However, the item(s) may not be available until that library re-opens. Similarly, the expiration date associated with an unfilled hold will not be affected by library closures.
CCRLS is expanding the Kanopy download limit from 5 to 10 per month, a temporary adjustment as part of our COVID-19 response. Kanopy is also stepping up with a collection of credit-free titles and free, unlimited access to Kanopy Kids.
