Open Trustee Position
The Cambridge Community Library is seeking an interested individual to fill an open position on the Library Board of Trustees. This position is open to anyone living in the greater area of the community of Cambridge. The trustee position includes one monthly board meeting (usually the second Wednesday of the month), some committee work, and a willingness to serve his/her community through commitment to and enthusiasm for the community’s public library. Serving on a public library board is similar to serving, as one might, in any other business, civic, or cultural board undertaking. As a trustee, you would work with four other board members, along with the director, in administrating the community library. The Cambridge Community Library is a consortium member along with approx. 55 other public libraries in the South Central Library System, uses a centralized on-line catalog system referred to as LINKcat. Anyone with questions about this position may visit the library, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the library (423-3900) and ask for Joan. Anyone interested in serving in this capacity please submit a letter of interest to email@example.com or mail it to Cambridge Community Library, P.O. Box 490 Cambridge WI 53523.

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?
Outside book return is open.
