Get the most from the library catalog

Our catalog has many features to help you get the most out of your library experience. Read the blogs below for more information and step-by-step instructions: 

  • Create targeted Searches to help you find exactly what you need: limit by format (DVDs, Large Print, Music CDs, etc), find On-Order items, or set specific details to find anything you're looking for! 
  • Quickly and easily place holds from the search results page. View and manage your Holds. 
  • Create Readings Lists and Wishlists of library materials as you peruse the catalog. You can easily create & maintain multiple wishlists, name those lists, print or email those lists, and add personal notes.
  • The My Account screen offers plenty of helpful features, all in one place.
  • Update your Contact Information and change your account preferences.
  • Go green! Opt into eReceipts to receive checkout receipts electronically and help reduce the use of paper.
  • Activate your (completely optional) Reading History to keep track of materials you've checked out.
  • Create a Username for easier log-in access; you no longer need to remember your entire library card number!
  • Tired of going to the library catalog and running the same searches for new materials each month? Now you can create Saved Searches for authors, subjects, or formats that interest you, and have the newly added items automatically emailed to you on the schedule you set.
  • Read Book Reviews from inside the library catalog, and write reviews on your favorite titles too!
  • Enjoy a Kid's Catalog, designed specifically for children.
  • Visit the Mobile Catalog on your portable devices.  It's designed to give you easy, on-the-go access to everything you need: items in the collection, general library information, and all of your account information.
  • Google's own maps are used on the Map It! feature, which displays book availability on an easy to navigate map, perfect for locating a book at another branch.
