On July 16, 2020, the FCC adopted rules to establish 988 as the new, nationwide, easy-to-remember 3-digit phone number for Americans in crisis to connect with suicide prevention and mental health crisis counselors.
To ensure that calls to 988 reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, all covered providers will be required to implement 10-digit dialing in areas that both use seven-digit dialing and use 988 as the first three numbers in seven-digit phone numbers.

Our New InfoSoup Catalog, powered by BiblioCommons, is live! We think you will find it easier to use and will love the new features. Your library card number and PIN will remain the same, but you will need to register a username on the new catalog. Information about registering is below. If you set up an EZ Login on our old catalog, that will not work on the new catalog, but you can continue to use it to login to the old catalog.
Our BiblioCommons catalog provides new features and a new interface, but our current catalog will remain available if you prefer to use it. Unfortunately, BiblioCommons cannot import lists from our current catalog, nor can it import or access the borrowing history in our current catalog. If your borrowing history is currently enabled, it will continue to keep track of items you check out, and can be accessed by signing into your account at https://catalog.infosoup.org/?section=MyAccount. If you have lists in the current catalog, those will remain. You will have the option to recreate them in BiblioCommons using the new shelves and lists features.
