Library Transition

The Pioneer Library System is undergoing a change in its computer system.  This is a good change, it will help in information organization and support a user friendly catalog interface.  However, this means from October 4th - October 6th (during the upgrading process) the library will be limited in its services to the public.  The only process the library will be able to complete (in consideration to computer system) is check-out materials that are here at the Newark library.  We will not be able to place holds, renew materials, register new users, look up account information, etc.

If we cannot complete your request at this time we would first, like to apologize for the inconvenience and second, ask that you come in or call back starting Friday, October 8th when the library will be back online and ready to go.  Please continue to come to the library during these three days.  You will still be able to use the computers, read books, do research, check-out materials, ask questions and return your items.  We are excited about this change and we ask for your patience during this transition.

If you have any questions or concerns please give us a call at (315) 331-4370.
