An easy way to track your library items is to use the WYLDcat Mobile app. It can be found by searching WYLDcat, Wyoming Libraries or WYLD in your device’s app store. Once installed, you can search materials, renew, place holds, view your virtual library card and link additional cards to your account.
Parents and guardians can load all of their family’s cards into the app and easily see everyone’s due dates at once. Have trouble remembering to bring your library card, but always have your phone? Use the virtual library card feature! Browse our collection and place holds from home – we’ll call, text or email when they are available.
If you need assistance downloading or setting up the app, stop by or contact Nicholle Gerharter at (307) 527-1880 or at [email protected].
Colt (from left) and Bridgette Gibson were happy to hear about automatic renewal because they need to keep their books a little longer.
The library recently launched a trial service to offer automatic renewal in lieu of collecting fines for overdue items. This pilot program promotes equitable access especially for low-income families and children – patrons for whom fines may create a barrier to service.
Material will automatically renew for another checkout period except for items with a hold placed on them. Patrons who have requested email or text notification will receive a message when an item cannot be renewed. Otherwise, DVDs will renew for one more week, books and audiobooks for two weeks.
For best use of limited staff, the librarians chose to focus on meeting patron needs instead of punitive and not actually lucrative collections tasks. The system relies on fines for slightly more than one half of one percent of its annual budget. This amount is quickly recouped in time gained for more impactful tasks such as children’s programs, teen activities, interlibrary loans, tech training, public programs of local interest and collection development.
Longstanding library policy encourages children, babies to age 18, to read off fines. One hour of reading or being read to clears one dollar on account. A note from the responsible adult at home will suffice. Loss or damage charges will still be billed.
Your library recently added hundreds of no-holds audiobooks to its RBdigital collection, including a memoir from 2020 presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Chuck Palahniuk’s (author of Fight Club) first novel in four years, book #1 in Alexander McCall Smith’s new Detective Varg series, a new collection from True Blood author Charlaine Harris, and many more! Even better, all of these audiobooks are “unlimited access,” so you have immediate access to these titles and will never experience a hold when you check them out!
Visit http://gowyld.net/econtent/rbdigital/ for the RBdigital app (iOS, Android, Kindle) to access these and thousands of other no-holds audiobooks today!
