Winter Emergency Opening and Closing Guidelines

  • The Cambridge Library determines their winter emergency opening and closing procedures by using the Cambridge School District’s determination as a guide.

  • It is highly recommended that on any days the school is affected by the weather the library may be also. Please call the Cambridge Community Library (423-3900) before venturing out to the library whenever the school district is closed or opening late due to road conditions.

  • Safety first – if the weather man has highly suggested staying off the roads, please call to see if we are open.

  • If it is a story hour day (Wednesday or Friday) and there is no school or the buses run late, there will be no story time.

  • Your Library Staff thanks you for understanding the need to possibly open later or close early due to inclement weather.


LINKcat Mobile app

The LINKcat Mobile app vendor, LibraryThing, has added several fixes to the app that are designed to address the problems with accessing and using the app. If patrons continue to experience any issues with the app, have the patron clear the settings in the app (instructions below). The patron may have followed these steps in the past, but please ask them to run through clearing the settings one more time:

1. In the upper right hand corner, click the "hamburger" (either three lines or three dots) and select "Clear all settings."

2. Then click the "Clear" button to set the app back to "factory settings."

3. Then have the patron log into their account on the app again.

If patrons continue to experience problems with the LINKcat Mobile app, please have them report the following information:

1. Type of device used (ex. iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy s8).

2. Operating system, including version (ex. iOS 13.3, Android 8.1.0).

3. Detailed description of the problem: For example, is the patron getting an error message? If so, what is the error message and when was it received (approximate time and date)? When does the patron get the error message (ex. when logging in, searching, etc.)? If there's no error message, what happens to prevent the patron from using the app? 

Patrons please note: You can go to www.linkcat.info or www.cambridgelib.org in a browser on your mobile device instead of using the mobile app. You may prefer this option.
