UPDATE: Wed. May 27 5 p.m. – Rohnert Park – Cotati Library reopening now. Rohnert Park-Cotati Regional Library will be closed Wednesday morning, May 27, due to a planned power outage. The Library will open when PG&E is finished with their work and restores electric power, expected by mid-afternoon Wednesday.
On Wednesday, May 20 and Thursday, May 21 we will be replacing computer systems that run our Library Catalog. During this upgrade, the following systems will be unavailable:
You will not be able to reserve or renew items by phone or on the web during this time.
You can still visit the Library to check out and renew items.
The Library Catalog, My Account, and SuperSearch were unavailable part of May 5 – 6 due to a major equipment problem. We regret the inconvenience.
Update for the evening of May 11: The system once again had some problems; we believe they have been corrected and all services should be working now.
During a library catalog system outage, you cannot renew books online or by using our automated phone system (Telecirc). You can still renew them in person by bringing them to the Library, with your library card. If you’re not able to renew your items, an overdue fine might appear on your account (the Library’s computer system is unable to prevent this). Please let your local library staff know if this happens. They can fix your account as needed.
