Go High-Tech at Your Library!

For anyone who still views their local library as a dusty room full of outdated books, here is a wake-up call about how your library’s connection to technology can help you access your reading material.



Place Books on Hold

Want to place a book on hold without coming into the library? Here’s how!

If you’re looking for something to read, the library has made it even easier for you to get what you’re looking for. Just find what you want to read on our website via our online catalog and place the item on hold online by clicking either the “REQUEST” or “HOLD REQUEST” button. Once the book is ready, the library will call you and all you have to do is pick it up! It’s that easy. At the main branch, you can even go through our drive-thru to check-out your book. Of course, for those of you who still prefer to place holds over the phone, you can always call any of our branches and ask that a book be put on hold for you.

E-Books

If you really can’t get out, the library can get books to you via our website. By going to our E-Library webpage, you can search our titles of audiobooks, e-books, music, and videos, find the title you’re interested in, and download it. For free! All you need is a library card and a computer, IPod, or MP3 player. Visit the link below and start browsing now!
