Eastern Shore County Libraries Prepare for New Systems Update

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md.- From Queen Anne's County and down to Wicomico County - Eastern Shore of Maryland public libraries are about to get a tech makeover.

But not without closing their doors first.

Onnie Duvall says he visits Dorchester County Library every week. 

"It's a little inconvenient but it's understandably inconvenient," Duvall said about the library closing. "I wasn't personally too thrilled about the library closing."

It's a slight inconvenience, but one that will make it easier to check out, renew, and return books and materials.

Along with self checkout stations, libraries will share an online catalog of all sorts of media. Patrons can check out and return books to different branches - and that's just naming a few of the new benefits.

Wicomico Public Library Chief Public Service Officer, Tim McRoberts, says it's all for one thing.

"It's to give our customers more access, more material throughout the whole county," McRoberts said.

It's a fair trade for Duvall.

"Everybody will be on the same playing field, which makes things much easier," Duvall said.

Each library has its own closing date while they make the transition. 

The official "Go Live" date for all eight libraries is schedules for Aug. 18.
