• 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
