One Step for One Login: Preparing for MCPL's New Website

January 31, 2018

On February 21, the Library will launch an updated version of its website. In addition to an improved mobile experience and enhanced search capabilities, the new will enable immediate connections to many of the Library’s online resources as well as provide seamless access to the catalog and quick event registration. To access all of this in the updated website, you only need to take one first step: set up your My MCPL profile in the MCPL online catalog. Doing this will allow you to navigate to various online resources without having to reenter your card information. Find instructions on how to set up your account in the catalog.


I clicked on the "Find instructions on how to set up your account in the catalog" link, and it gave me a 404 error.

Thank you for reporting that error. We have updated the link to the account instructions.

Hello! I am very sorry for the inconvenience. Our online catalog has been having intermittent connection issues this afternoon. The vendor is aware of the problem and is currently working on the issue. Unfortunately, we do not have a time frame as to when it will be fixed. You may wish to check back later this evening to see if the system has stabilized a bit.

Alternatively, if you are trying to access your ebooks or eaudiobooks, you may access our digital collection directly from out OverDrive Digital Downloads website here:

I hope this was helpful. If you have further questions, please feel free to email us at
