Upcoming PINES Service Outage


PINES servers will be taken offline Wednesday, April 10 at 9pm for their move to our new server colocation facility. This will affect the online catalog, the staff client, and the iOS and Android apps. All services will be restored by start of business on Thursday morning.

PINES Maintenance Upgrade


PINES will be taken offline at 9pm on Wednesday, February 27 for around 3 hours to do a small software upgrade. This will affect the PINES online catalog as well as the PINES app.

PINES Upgrade January 19-22, 2019


All PINES online services (including the online catalog, the Android and iOS apps, and additional services that require PINES account logins) will be unavailable from January 19 at 6pm through January 22 at 6am.



Barcodes now available in PINES Apps


We are happy to announce that with the newest upgrade of the PINES app for both iOS and Android phones, library patrons can use the new "Show Card" feature to display their account number as a scannable barcode! This allows patrons to use their phone at the circulation desk, at self-check machines, and at libraries that are set up to use barcode scanners to register for computer usage.

The PINES online public catalog will be unavailable Sunday, December 2, 2018 beginning at 6pm. All services should be back online by Midnight.
