UPDATE: September 06,2019

Hurricane Dorian is lashing North Carolina and southeast Virginia with torrential rain, storm surge flooding, high winds and tornadoes and is headed for a brush of southeast New England tonight before slamming into Atlantic Canada this weekend.

NOTE for DOCLINE Members: If your library will be closed due to the hurricane, please set your library “out of office” to temporarily deactivate lending in DOCLINE. If your library has never set your “out of office” before, please visit the NNLM DOCLINE website to learn how. Doing so will prevent requests from routing to your library during times of extended absence or special circumstances.
