New at the library this week

When you read through this list of new books each week, do you ever find yourself saying “I want to read that. And that. And that?” But then when you’re looking for your next book, you don’t remember all the ones you said you wanted to read?

Yep, thought so. But the library has you covered. When you browse the the library catalog online, you can now add books to your Wish List. The next time you sign in to the system with your library card and pin, your list will be waiting for you. Cool, huh?

A couple of the books this week are so new they’re not even in the online catalog yet. But be patient, I’m sure they’ll be there soon.
