The Bartlett Public Library District’s computer systems were disabled on Saturday, November 30, 2019 by a ransomware virus.

Ransomware encrypts data so that the owner loses access to all of their files and emails. No one’s private information was compromised.

The Library does not store sensitive information such as credit cards, social security numbers, and/or driver’s license numbers.

We know our patrons rely on our services and the IT Staff and outside consultants have been diligently working on getting

all of our systems back up and running. Our catalog has been restored as of Wednesday, December 4th. We are working on

processing manual checkouts from the past few days, as well as checking items back into the system.

At this time, our patrons can access the Internet, WiFi, and printing services. We are working to make all of our services available as soon as

possible. Our email system is still not working. The library cannot send or receive emails at this time.

No hold or overdue notices will be sent until the system is back up.

Thank you for being patient as we work through this challenging and unfortunate situation. We apologize for any inconvenience.
