On the morning of Wednesday November 9, 2022 starting at 6:00 am CST, the Milwaukee County Federated Library System will be migrating its library network.
The scheduled maintenance impacts all public libraries in Milwaukee County, and is expected to take 4-6 hours to complete. The maintenance needs to be performed during a business workday to ensure that key staff working behind the library system software are readily available to assist with the project.
While our libraries will be open this day, CountyCat, CountyCat Mobile and all resources or services with a connection to our library system (such as Hoopla, OverDrive/Libby, Kanopy, etc.) will be unavailable for the duration of the scheduled maintenance. If you have downloaded titles from any online service in advance, then you will be able to use them that day. Patrons just won’t be able to checkout, stream or download NEW items during the outage.
E-resources with access set up via a library barcode, such as the BadgerLink databases, Creativebug (Wauwatosa, West Allis), AtoZ databases (Shorewood), Gale Virtual Reference Books (West Allis) are available at this time. Go to the Databases by Library page to access individual resources.
A news item and social media announcement will be posted as soon as the project is completed that day. The Milwaukee County Federated Library System apologizes for this great inconvenience.
