The ebooks the Library provides are a wonderful service. So is front-door pickup for physical books and other material. Numerous titles are available from our Contra Costa County system but no one library system can own every title or meet all of our needs. That’s why LINK+ was such a great service, allowing us to obtain materials from other library systems.
LINK+ has not been available to us since the Library experienced a cyber-attack in January 2020. I wonder if the Library has any plans to restore the service, or whether this is now dependent on the pandemic. A question for the Library: Is there any hope that LINK+ will be up and running again soon?
