Lucindale gets ready for One Card library network

THE staff at the Lucindale Community Library are busy preparing for a new borrowing system to come into effect later this year.

On September 18 the One Card network - already in place at the Naracoorte library - will go "live", giving members access to millions of books, DVDs, CDs and magazines from all across SA. 

Library manager Barb Woolard said it was quite a large process to get it all set up.

"We're busily doing stocktake at the moment...we're having to design a new (library) card and doing computer upgrades," she said.

"It will link us with every library in the State so people can choose to order items themselves online or they can come in.

"It gives them the freedom to decide where they want the books to be delivered to, whether that be to Lucindale or maybe Naracoorte if they're travelling in daily for work."

Staff recently did a letterbox drop of a brochure explaining the One Card system to locals.

All users need to be re-enrolled to use the network so everyone is encouraged to fill it in and drop it back off to the library as soon as possible.

"We are requesting all community members complete it and return it by July 4," Mrs Woolard said.

"It's important we get the forms back so we can update patron details and hand out all the new cards."

Naracoorte Public Library went on the One Card program just over 12 months ago.

"Everyone knows about the Naracoorte library and we're excited it's going to be happening here now," Mrs Woolard said.
