    The Catalog  

    There are currently two versions of the catalog!
    Feel free to try either one.

    1. New catalog -- click here.
      • There is an introduction page for first-time users -- click here.
      • Digital items (such as from Overdrive) appear right along with physical copies in the new catalog.
      • Typical searches are much easier. It will search for your home library first, but you can change this filter in the upper left of the page.
      • There is also a survey button -- please feel free to offer feedback.
    2. Classic (older) version -- click here. This is the one with no pictures of covers.

    If there is an item that is not brand new AND is not in our county's catalog, you can try to request it from another library system.

    There are currently two versions of "My Account".
    You can go back and forth between the two.
    Both use the same library card number and PIN.

    Your items currently checked out, requested items, and reading history (if you have activated this feature) are the same in both versions.

    If you have a wish list, it does NOT transfer to the new version automatically. Just sign in to the new version, choose Wish Lists in the column on the right, and you can choose to Import your old wish list with the button on the left.
