Preview MCPL's new website
We'll soon be launching our redesigned website, and we're offering you a sneak peek.
The redesign is based on customer feedback and website analytics, and we had excellent support from the county’s Department of Technology Services. We want our new site to be welcoming and easy for you to use. Here are some of the its features:
- A brand-new look and feel.
- A search box for the library catalog and website on the header of every page.
- Navigation with dropdowns to connect you to our most-used resources and pages.
- A calendar of events on the homepage so you can find library programs.
- "How do I ... " links to your most frequently asked questions about using the library.
- Branch pages with hours, directions, maps, and events.
- Links on the homepage to all of the ways you can connect with us, from apps to Facebook to Ask-a-Librarian.
- A Twitter feed on the homepage so you can keep up with the latest word from the libraries.
In the preview site, you will see a pop-up window whenever you link to MCPL's services on other domains. These include our catalogs, calendars, research tools, e-books, and Ask-a-Librarian. Current county policy requires that any link to sites outside the montgomerycountymd.gov domain display this pop-up window. Please do not worry that you have linked incorrectly or broken anything. Note that this policy is under review.
