A New Look!
There will be a new look to our library catalog on Monday, April 21. Scrolling "rivers" on the main page highlight our newest materials. You can place holds on several items at once from a search list or from lists you create. Text information about an item to your smart phone! Our goal is to make it easier for you to access our collections from your mobile device, while still allowing easy searching from your home computer or in the Library. We will continue to tweak and improve this catalog. Try it now.
