What a dreaded word “updates” has become. We do love our computers, networks, social media and word processing but…. we will be down maybe half a day on Monday the 17th and then on two days in February– the 15 and 16th. The DeKalb Public Library has no control over this because this is a system wide updating of the ciruclation software on Monday and again in February. So all libraries in the system will be down as well. No Internet either. We can still check materials out via pencil and paper but that will be about all.
