SUSPENSION OF RESOURCE SHARING AND COURIER SERVICE: The MOBIUS Board of Directors have voted to temporarily suspend resource sharing for the MOBIUS Union Catalog until further notice. Courier service, including the connections to all of our out-of-state partners, will be suspended until further notice. Courier service will be suspended by the end of day March 20, 2020. 

RETURNS TO LIBRARIES THAT ARE NOW CLOSED:  If you have materials to ship out via the courier to another to library, we’d like to ask you to keep those items for now.  As a backup, STAT will keep and store anything that gets through but can’t get delivered.

MOBIUS STAFF: We have been working remotely as of Tuesday, March 17th.  We are well equipped to work remotely and often do this during inclement weather so you will be able to reach us as usual by email or phone. Please let us know how we can help.
