Do you love new releases?
New Fiction, New Non-Fiction are in a separate kiosk near the front desk so finding a new release is easy for our readers. We keep newer books in this separate section for at least the first 6 months.
Plus we put stickers with a month of release on new Fiction, Non-Fiction, Young Adults, Large print and audio-books so you are able to see just how new of a release it is. Plus our system alerts us if you have checked a title out previously so you don’t accidentally check out a book you have already read.
Do you love to read books in a series?
Who doesn’t love a great book series with really great characters and intriguing story lines. We do! But series are hard to keep track of sometimes. We have made it easy for you. Most books are listed in our catalog with their series name. Plus while you are looking on the shelf,
we make it easy for you to see which books go together and what order by numbering them with the same color of sticker on their spine. Plus you can always ask a librarian for help if you wanted to double check.
