The municipal library of Monção today made available to its 3,800 readers access to more than 42 thousand books through a municipal portal, which also allows searching documents or submitting suggestions, informed the municipality of Alto Minho.
According to the Câmara de Monção, the new municipal portal aims to “deepen the relationship between the library and its users, also integrating the six school libraries in the county, joining a similar service offered by the Municipal Archive, where it is also possible to consult the documentary collection of that structure “.
“The availability of the online catalog is another step of the municipality to bring users closer to the municipal library and school, making available a set of services accessible anywhere and at any time,” said the councilor of Social Action, Culture and Tourism, João Oliveira.
With the commissioning of the new service, that municipality signaled the School Library Day, which is now celebrated, allowing the readers of the county access to a set of services through the Internet.
“Readers now have the opportunity to search the library’s existing documents, make bookings, renew loans, or make suggestions for new acquisitions, all within a click of a button,” the council said.
According to the local authority, users can also “export, print and save records, view search and loan history, and manage reading preferences.”
