Welcome To The Lower Merion Library System (LMLS)

Special Notice from Montgomery Co. Library & Information Network Consortium (MCLINC)

Please bring your library card to borrow items on Tuesday and Wednesday August 25-26, 2015. MCLINC libraries announces that software upgrades will occur during these 2 days. Disruptions to the online catalog will begin on Tuesday morning starting at 8 a.m. The software upgrade will require offline operations at all MCLINC libraries including all LMLS libraries. During the upgrade staff will be unable to access patron account information such as items on loan or fines and fees. Internet access will be unaffected by the library upgrade, therefore there will be no interruptions to searches on remote electronic databases, such as the POWER Library. A backup online catalog will be available for use inside the libraries. For more information, contact your local library or Sukrit Goswami, System Administrator at 610-238-0580 or email to webmaster@mclinc.org..
