Recommended Summer Reading...

Librarian Lynn Hoffmann shares some timely tips for summer reading and placing a hold on the books you want. Lynn suggests checking out the New York Times Notable Books in the library's reading room, "under the clock," with a special Notable Books label on the spine. Some of the 46 available titles include: The Dissident by Neil Freudenberger; High Lonesome: New and Selected Stories by Joyce Carol Oates; Skinner's Drift by Lisa Fugard; At Canaan's Edge: America in the King Years, by Taylor Branch; Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community and War by Nathaniel Philbrick; and The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan.

Someone else has the book you want? Here's how to be next...
  • Go to the library's online catalog.
  • Search for the book you want.
  • If the book you want is checked out, click on the title to open the record.
  • Click on Request at the top of the screen.
  • Enter your barcode and last name.
  • Place the hold.
