All About Books (& More)

The new web site gives you many ways to connect with your favorites titles, including rotating covers on the home page and many good things in the "Books & More" category.

Search Box
Use the search box at the top of every page to search the library catalog - just type in your terms, click the circle next to "library catalog," and click "search."

Catalog Links
Use the "catalog" links on the left side of the home page to go the two versions of our catalog, Encore and Classic Catalog, or to log into your account.

Rotating Book Covers
On the left side of the home page you'll see covers of the books, DVDs, and CDs that are most popular at the library right now. If you put your mouse over these images they will stop changing, and if you click on an image you'll see that title's entry in the catalog, where you can see if it's on the shelf and, if not, request it. The catalog entry opens in a new window or tab; just click on the "x" at the top to close it and get back to the home page. (The Kids and Teen home pages have their own rotating cover features.)

Books & More
The "Books & More" category is all about the library's collection. It's organized by type of material (books, DVDs, CDs, etc.), and then by the way these materials are grouped on the shelf (mysteries, animated DVDs, jazz CDs, etc.).

Recently ordered titles: Find new things before they're even in the library. Check out our lists of recently-ordered fiction, large print, nonfiction, audiobooks, DVDs, and CDs. Just navigate to the page for those kinds of materials, or use the "all lists" page. Also, don't miss our lists of recently-ordered titles for kids and teens.

Recently-added titles: Once we receive a title from the vendor and get it ready to check out, it goes on one of our "recently added" lists. You'll find lists for every category we use, such as large print, science fiction, TV shows on DVD, and country CDs, as well as categories for kids and teen items. Just navigate to the page for the category you want, or use the "all lists" page.

Most popular titles: What's hot right now? What's hot this year? Browse our lists of the most popular titles at the library and find out. You'll find lists for every category we use, such as large print, science fiction, TV shows on DVD, and country CDs, as well as categories for kids and teen items. Just navigate to the page for the category you want, or use the "all lists" page

Online resources: While you're checkout out the lists of titles in your favorite category, click over to the "online resources" for that category. You'll find links to things like Bookletters, award lists, and other web sites that are specific to that category.

Magazines and newspapers: Now you can see lists of all our magazines and newspapers. Just click on a title to go to its record in the catalog, where you can see what copies are available and other information.
