With upcoming holidays and the end of the year looming, libraries are reminded to update their Horizon calendar to reflect the library’s closed days for 2005 and 2006. You must have security access to update your library's calendar. You will find the calendar at the bottom of the Navigation Bar. Click on the link entitled, "Calendar Exceptions," a search screen will appear, highlight the "Location" index, type in your 3-letter code, and click "Search."
A list of your library's closed days will appear. If holidays or closed days already exist from last year, you can edit those dates by highlighting the line and clicking on "Edit." Change any information such as description or date, click "Save" and "Close." If you need to add a new holiday or closed day, click "New" to add an additional day. Add the description and date for the day. If you are closed the entire day, you do not need to add opening/closing times. Click "Save" and "Close."
Libraries are responsible for maintaining their own calendars. Not updating the calendar means that items may have due dates on dates that you are closed, and notices will be generated for the days you are closed.

MEDIA MALL CIRCULATION
Although Media Mall has only been publicized for one month, we have some circulation to report. We are posting this monthly data at this web site: http://www.ltls.org/MediaMall/mediamallcirstats.html.
Although the statistics are not huge, we can report that the Lincoln Trail patrons are circulating more than 21% of the entire total of all libraries participating in Media Mall. Congratulations to everyone who has been promoting this product.
