New video promoting libraries

Just in time for Library Lovers Day, actor Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation, Making It, Good Omens) stars in this video, created by Chicago marketing firm Imagination for our library system, RAILS. The Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS) wants to celebrate the passion for libraries through The Wizard of the World Wide Web.

The Wizard of the World Wide Web is growing desperate. Can the Internet regain control of the world's knowledge needs when libraries reign supreme? 

More information can be found on My Library Is ... for Library Lovers page at there, you can take the Library Lovers Quiz!

A very special thank you to Mr. Offerman for his time, talent, and generosity.

RSAcat Mobile app

Want to access the library’s catalog from your mobile device? You can with the new RSAcat Mobile app!  It available for both Android and Apple devices. The RSAcat Mobile app means accessing our catalog is more convenient than ever. Head to the Apple or Google Play Stores, install the free app, and log in with your LME library card and PIN.  (Don't know your PIN?  Contact us at 385-4540 and we'll reset it for you!)
The much improved app makes it easy to manage your account, search the catalog, renew checkouts, and place holds. You can also scan the ISBN barcode on the back of a book to see if we have a copy, receive notifications for holds or fees, or search for nearby libraries. The RSAcat Mobile app also features improved accessibility for VoiceOver and larger text sizes.
Brand new features include the ability to link multiple accounts and manage them from the app, so that a parent can link their children’s accounts. Patrons can now also pay fines or bills directly from the app.
