• MORE My Account problem and Sierra update There was a Sierra update late Friday that created a problem with the main catalog's My Account--patrons can't renew, pay fines, manage holds, etc. from the main My Account screen. Our vendor is working on the problem. I've temporarily changed the My Account link on the homepage to direct users to the Classic Account, which works for all account functions.  If Sierra is updating the next time you open it, start Sierra on one computer at a time at your library. -Lori 05/21/2017 - 9:53am

General Website Tips

  • Your website is not an effective marketing tool. Use something else to market your services.
  • It is an effective way for people to access your services.
  • The most popular things people come to your website to do are:
    1. Search the online catalog
    2. Find out when you're open
    3. See what events are coming up
    4. Contact you
  • Be brief. Be clear.
  • Use images sparingly and with a purpose.
  • You can't emphasize everything. You'll need to make choices.
  • Slideshows look good, but the first slide is the only one that 90% of people see.
