Newport Beach, CA (July 13, 2020) - The Newport Beach Public Library Board of Library Trustees is pleased to announce the launch of a new Integrated Library System on July 13, 2020.

The powerful new software, Sirsi-Dynix Symphony, is now seamlessly integrated into the Newport Beach Public Library website so customers can search for library materials, place holds, renew books, create reading lists and manage their personal account. The new system performs all the favorite functions of the former system, along with many new technological advancements and customer service enhancements that were not available 12 years ago when the current system was initiated.

Patrons will now  have communication options such as text messaging and automatic renewals when items are not on hold by other customers.  It also integrates well with Overdrive downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks and offers additional filtering options to expedite and limit search results. A Mobile App will be added July 20, 2020.

Patrons logging into My Account should use the password 9999 for the first login, then change to their own unique password. also, be sure to "bookmark" the new site for fast future access. Library materials can be picked up using Curbside Service.
