Library Upgrades Online Catalog to Aspen Discovery; Discontinues the RCLS Gateway App

Greetings valued library Patron!

The Library’s catalog was upgraded to provide a better online experience for you.

Regrettably, the RCLS Gateway App is currently inactive due to ongoing issues with our vendor. Rest assured, our team is actively engaged in securing a new mobile app solution for member libraries and their patrons. We’re committed to ensuring a seamless experience and will promptly announce the launch of the new app via our website and social media platforms, which is expected to be completed by the end of January 2024.
In the interim, please utilize your library’s Aspen Discovery catalog directly on your mobile device to manage your account, place holds, and explore our library resources. Additionally, we recommend continuing to utilize the Libby App to access your eContent. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding as we move forward.
-The Ramapo Catskill Library System

PLEASE NOTE: All of your current account information (checkouts, holds, fines, address and phone, etc.) are available on the new system. Your library barcode and Personal Identification Number (PIN) will remain the same.
