Nobody's asked the question, but the answer is that, yes, our online catalog system is more secure than ever.
You've probably heard of the Heartbleed Open SSL bug, the glitch in "secure" Internet sites that meant they were eminently hackable.
Biblionix, the company that built and maintains our computer system, let us know today that as soon as they heard about the Heartbleed problem, they jumped on a fix. That fix means that you can set your own password when you log into our catalog system. Or you can continue to use your card number and phone numer. It's up to you.
Not that anyone would want to hack a library's system. I mean, what would they want to find out?
