haltom city texas public libraryThe Haltom City Public Library is preparing for some big changes in January, 2015. The Library’s catalog software will be changing from Horizon to Polaris, which means big changes for the staff and some great new features for our Library patrons. 

Some new features that you may enjoy in Polaris include:

  • Patrons can enlarge text
  • Patrons can update their own phone numbers and email addresses
  • And many more!
