The new ENCORE Online Catalog offers patrons the ability to search and order library materials, to renew materials, to keep a reading list
and share reviews with other patrons [Note: some of these aspects you must turn on yourself]. One of the new features is the Hold/Request button, in which the system will find the first available copy and send to GPL or Cossitt within 48-72 hours (you will need your 14-digit library card number; no spacing). Take a few minutes to view this great training video produced by East Hartford Public Library to learn a bit more how the Holds function works for you! If you need assistance or have questions regarding your account, please call the Granby Public Library at 860.844.5275 or Cossitt Library at 860.653.8958.
