NC van route truncated Fri 4/22


The North Country ILL van route has been cut short today due to dangerous driving conditions.
The driver was not able to make it to Bethlehem and Littleton, but all other libraries on the Friday route had deliveries.

Drive safe, and have a good weekend.

NHU-PAC maintenance outages this week

The NHU-PAC will be offline for scheduled maintenance twice this week.

There will be a brief interruption of service on Tuesday, Feb. 26, starting at 7:35 a.m.  The NHU-PAC should be back online around 7:45.  This is part of our regular last-Tuesday-of-the-month server maintenance routine.

There will be a bigger interruption of service on Thursday, Feb. 28, starting around 9 a.m.  This outage is expected to last about 3 hours.  A message will be posted when service is restored.  This outage is for further server maintenance to ensure continued service while the NHU-PAC awaits migration to a new platform.  The procurement process for the new system is taking longer than anticipated in the Schedule of Events listed in last year's RFP for a new statewide ILL solution and we remain in the "quiet period" while negotiations continue.

NC van route truncated Fri 2/15


I’ve just heard from the North Country driver that due to hazardous driving conditions, she is turning back and will not complete her route.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but we always leave these decisions to the driver’s best judgment.

Thank you for your understanding.

NC van route change Thurs 2/14


Folks, we’re scrambling to try and get everyone at least one ILL delivery in the North Country this week, but we’re stretched thin.  A substitute driver is doing the MONDAY and WEDNESDAY delivery schedule today, but that means we’ve had to cancel our Thursday route.  We made that decision because the majority of Thursday libraries did get a delivery on Tuesday, but many libraries on the Monday/Wednesday route have not received any deliveries this week. 

We’re hopeful Heather will be able to return to work next week and the delivery schedule will return to normal.
