SPARK Feature Highlight/Library Spotlight – August 2022

Katherine DannehlDiscussion Starter, Tech Tip

This month, we want to chat a little bit about print notices.

These notices are set up similarly to the email notices your patrons get daily, except they are formatted to be printable/mailable.

Print notices are most used for lost items, but they can also be used for overdue, courtesy, or holds notices

To see your library’s print notices, you’ll use your staff login at this link, which can also be accessed in our knowledge books:

https://pails.evergreencatalog.com/notices/SHORTCODE/index.html

You’ll replace SHORTCODE with your library or library system’s shortcode, depending on how your notices are setup 😊

If you’d like to set up print notices or alter existing ones, please reach out to us through the support portal!

We have a great handful of libraries to spotlight because last week PaILS went on our Great Summer Tour 2022!

Elizabeth and Katherine visited some SPARK libraries in central PA 😊

DEGENSTEIN COMMUNITY LIBRARY

We enjoyed visiting the wonderful staff and aquatic creatures of Degenstein!

MILTON PUBLIC LIBRARY

This “Beloved Books and their One-Star Amazon Reviews” book display from Milton just had to be spotlighted.

ORWIGSBURG AREA FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY

You’re gonna need a bigger boat!

DIMMICK MEMORIAL LIBRARY

Another fantastic book display, this time from Dimmick: “He’s a 10, but…”

POTTSVILLE DISTRICT

We loved this quiet corner of the Pottsville Free Public Library after attending the Pottsville District meeting.

If you want us to visit your library, shoot us an email. We’d love to stop by!
