New Books!

Don't forget that the library displays its new adult non-fiction books in a separate area on the 2nd floor! You'll enjoy browsing among the recent additions that the library has to offer. Did you know that most new items also circulate for the same period as the non-new items?

If you want to see all the "new" items when you do a catalog search, simply choose "New adult non-fiction" from the Limit by drop-down box and then hit Go!

You'll then see just the new items -- and at the time of this post, there were more than 500 choices.

You can use the same drop-down to find all new fiction, too (which is shelved on the 1st floor).

In fact, you can use this drop-down to limit your choice to many different types of books and materials. If you need help, just ask a librarian!
