The redesigned catalog is live, and ready to use. 

Continue reading to see a screenshot of the front page, learn about options that are still available, as well as new options coming with the redesigned catalog.

The catalog hasn’t changed with regards to its functionality. Searching, placing holds, and managing your account function exactly the same. The design has changed by adding more muted colors, and borders. It’s visually more appealing and easier to read.

On the front page, you’ll see the top navigation bar, a quick links section, the search section, and a promotional section.

On the top navigation bar, you'll see buttons for Login, My Account, My Lists, Borrow or Suggest, Contact Us, Select Language, Enable Accessibility Mode, and Help.

  • My Account
    • My account displays basic information such as phone number, email address, etc.
    • Same available options include viewing checkouts (physical and digital), holds (physical and digital), fines, and any existing requests.
    • Options to change your pin and to enable checkout history still exists.
      • If you need assistance with enabling checkout history, ask a staff member for help.
    • NEW FEATURE ALERT! Opt-in to SMS notifications for bills, overdues, holds pickup, general messages and/or announcements.

  • My Lists
    • With My Lists, you may keep a list of titles that you’ve read, or store titles that you would like to read.

  • Contact Us
    • Use this option to access a list of library locations with phone numbers, and addresses, as well as an online form to ask questions, send comments or suggestions.

  • Borrow or Suggest
    • Use this option to ask for titles that aren’t in the collection. We may borrow from another library system or purchase to add to the collection.

TIP! A quick way to return to the front page is to use the Home button. The image resembles a house. 

Search section

  • This section is located to the right of the Home button.
  • All three search fields (Search All, All Fields, and the “insert keyword, etc.” field) offer the same choices as the current design, and the advanced search option performs the same as well.
  • Searching for titles, viewing title information, and placing holds function the same as the current design, but again, the design is different. 

Quick link section

  • Get tips on how to search the catalog, how to enable checkout history, etc., link to the Accelerated Reader info, or use the Kids or Teens catalog. 

Showcase section

  • This section promotes the collection. It's prime real estate for the collection.
  • The middle section displays the book rivers, aka the slideshows.
    • NEW FEATURE ALERT! We’ve added two new book rivers to that slideshow.
      • They are New Large Type and Coming Soon.
      • The Coming Soon book river previews titles that are on-order. These are titles that are not physically at the library, but are on their way. But good news for you. You get to see what’s coming, and place holds on those titles.
  • Right side column
    • I Want to Read
      • Pre-filtered searches for popular genre lists such as Science Fiction, Westerns, and Romances. These lists are automatically updated as titles are added to the collection.
    • Reader’s Advisory resources offers various reader’s advisory tools for learning about new titles being published, and to receive snippets of new books, eBooks, keep track of favorite authors, etc.
