Service Update

We continue to recover from a cybersecurity incident that disrupted all library systems and technology. As a result, using the library is a little different right now.

Mac computers are available at some Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) locations. We are working to reinstate Mac computers at all locations over the coming weeks. For more information, please call your local DIH location.
