Paola Free Library will close early at 5 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday Aug. 25th. We will be closed Friday, Aug. 26th and Saturday, Aug. 27th as well in order to switch to a new catalog system and for training. We will reopen at 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 29th as a member of the NExpress library consortium. This means that you will be able to browse over one million items available at about 50 libraries on the NExpress online catalog and place holds on the titles you want! Our courier service will be upgraded to 5 day per week delivery as well, which means items requested from other libraries will arrive much faster.
If you have not yet gotten your new library card, you may do so the next time you visit us. If you already have a NExpress card from another library (like Osawatomie or Ottawa), you may use that card at PFL starting Monday.
All items that are due tomorrow through Saturday have been renewed and are now due on Sep. 7th. Thank you for your patience as we make this transition, which will make so many more items readily available to you.
