FINDING A GREAT BOOK

Online tools to help you find a great read:

Pick up a free copy of Book Page the next time you are in the library. This monthly "book newspaper" is an excellent way to find out about new and notable titles.

The Library subscribes to Bookmarks magazine, which can be found in the Periodical Room, near the Reference Desk.

Want to buy books? We have an online bookstore with ABE Books. The Friends of the Library have a booksale in our lobby each Wednesday from 10 to 3.
