   DECATUR - Software updates are a fact of life. While sometimes annoying and a bit disruptive, they are a necessary task in order to add new features, fix problems, or remove outdated features. Van Buren District Library is scheduled to undergo an unavoidable software update beginning Friday, July 12, 5 p.m., through Monday, July 15, 9 a.m.
   During this time, the library’s catalog will not be available for checking items in or out, placing holds, renewing materials or searching for items.
   “The library’s online catalog is scheduled to undergo a necessary upgrade,” Library Director Dan Hutchins said. “We understand this means some inconvenience for our patrons; however, the upgrade will enhance our catalog’s functionality by correcting issues brought to our attention by our customers.”
   All VBDL locations will be open as usual Saturday, July 13. For more information, phone (269) 423-4771; e-mail, or stop by the nearest VBDL location.
