Book Browsing

* - Patrons have also expressed an interest in being able to access the collection for browsing, or get the help they usually would in person in finding materials.  A rotating selection of staff picks will be available for browsing at the Central library in the Faulkner Gallery according to the schedule above.

Staff will be able to assist you in finding books or DVDs you are interested in and answer any questions about them. Have your library card number ready, and staff will check out items.

If patrons aren’t able to come to the library to browse, Librarians can curate a personalized reading list using our Book Match service. Fill out a form for requesting materials for adults, or requesting materials for kids and teens. The Library has also resumed printing services, and has Chromebooks available for checkout for those who need computer access.
