Library Catalog App

The FVRLibraries catalog app is currently in redevelopment and will remain unavailable through early 2024. In the meantime, please use the web catalog.

If you already have the app on your device, please be aware all the data on it is frozen as of November 24. If you wish to see your current checkouts or holds, or search for materials, you need to log into the web catalog. You may still access your account barcode in the app. 

We thank you for your patience and look forward to bringing you a better experience in the coming year.
