• Sierra maintenance updates Our vendor is applying fairly frequent "maintenance updates" to our system, the most recent one being overnigh Wednesday to Thursday (April 19-20). If you notice a message about an update at the bottom of your Sierra session when you open it, please try to open Sierra on one computer at a time at your library. These udpates should not take long to complete. -Lori 04/20/2017 - 12:16pm

This problem is expected to be fixed next week. I'll post an updade when the fix is in place. -Lori 04/19/2017 - 3:01pm
