LIVINGSTON, NJ - During the week of May 12, library visitors will notice extra activity near the public computers. The technology team from BCCLS will be installing and upgrading computers throughout the building. There may be slight interruptions in service, but when the project is finished, users will see improvements: PCs will have Windows 7, more memory, faster processing speeds, and other updates.
The project is built in to the Library's annual membership in BCCLS, with no additional cost to taxpayers. Technical support, installation, and replacement of PCs are included in the fee paid each year.
As a member library in BCCLS, Livingston Library residents get greatly expanded borrowing power, with access to the collections of 75 libraries in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties. Users share the online catalog and check-out system, loans from other libraries, Internet services, deeply discounted group rates for database subscriptions, and much more. Downloadable audio books and e-books are two recent additions.
A library official said, "Thank you for your patience during the project."
