Well, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end and today we say goodbye to our old website and hello to our new one! Over the next few weeks the San Juan Island Library is doing a ‘soft launch’ of our new website.

There had been a few ongoing issues with our website’s old platforms and their maintenance. So, in order to give our community the best service possible, we decided to create an all new interface, on a new server and host.

So please explore the new site. We have tried to incorporate many staff and patron suggestions and there are quite  a few surprises to be found, including:

  • Staff bios (make sure you hover on the pictures) and reading interests
  • Board of Trustees Bios
  • Enhanced and expanded FOL pages with board bios
  • Carousels of new items
  • A Library Value calculator to help you realize the money you save by utilizing our wonderful Library as a resource
  • A page for our Spanish community
  • A Reading Room with reviews, links, lists and book groups
  • Library publications can now be easily found online including our newsletters, columns, brochures and applications

We have kept many aspects of our old site including some of the navigation and the event slider.

We know that change can be difficult but we do hope you like our new website and the much wider scope of information now at your fingertips.

As always- please feel free to contact staff for any questions or help.
