Area 2, YRL Update: August 10

Good afternoon!

This update includes information on:

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Libraries: A Conversation webinar reminder

CloudLibrary update

You and/or your patrons may have noticed that CloudLibrary has been having some recurrent performance issues over the past 10 days. Currently, there are intermittent outages with authentication via the app and website. It should, however, not prevent you from checking out and downloading CloudLibrary titles via TRACpac. This is affecting all their customers and they have been working diligently for a resolution. We thank you for your patience.

Washable keyboards and mice order

We had great response to our initial bulk purchase of high-quality, sealable, waterproof, dishwasher-safe keyboards and/or mice for libraries in May. If you missed out, or would like to order more, please email with the number of quantities by Monday, August 17.

NOTE: Disregard keyboard and mouse list prices shown online – it’s USD from a different supplier.
