Library computer system upgrades

The Pleasanton Public Library will begin the month-long process of upgrading its computer systems on Monday to improve service levels and result in enhanced account functionality for library users, according to city officials.

“The upgrade is expected to be completed by July 20, during which time some services will be limited while work is completed,” officials said.

“During the upgrade period, the library will maintain normal opening hours, visitors can register for a new library card, and items can continue to be borrowed. The library is asking users to return borrowed items before June 20 or after July 20,” they added.
