Escondido Library launches new website

The Escondido Public Library’s new website makes it easy for patrons to get information about the library and connect to free, online research tools 24 hours a day. The clean, welcoming design was created with the user in mind. Improved navigation makes finding answers a cinch and users are invited to interact through blogs and the library’s social networking pages.

Patrons can check their account information, discover new titles, and place holds from the comfort of their own homes. Here are a few more ways to use the site:

The redesigned site was created by Technology Services Librarian, Donna Feddern using the mojoPortal content management system and will soon feature downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks (Summer 2011).

The website can be accessed by visiting http://library.escondido.org.
