An Appeal to Customers to Drop by the Library

The branches have been receiving lots of new books recently, and Central just got hundreds of new fiction titles this week. On your way home today, stop by a Library location to see all the new books – we look like Barnes & Noble! If you don’t find the new book that had a great review in the catalog, be aware that there seems to be small glitch with the catalog today. Some of the 2008 titles with holds on them are not showing up in the catalog, but the problem should be resolved soon, perhaps even by the time you read this.

While on vacation last week, I saw lots of people reading The Appeal
by John Grisham. Unfortunately, all our copies are checked out today, but to find other new books, go to FindIt’s Advanced Search and enter 2008 for publication year and select Recent Books – Adult under location.

For more reading ideas, please see the Library's Good Reads best fiction lists and nonfiction lists by year which have been updated for 2008.

Is there a way to see the new materials listed online? Thanks!

Use FindIt's Advanced Search and enter 2008 for the publication year. The Library catalog does not have a list of a new materials - you must create a list by limiting by the current publication year.

Ah, yes, I meant a list of "new stuff received in the last X weeks" or something similar, as opposed to a list of "all 2008 works." Oh well, thanks.
