Monthly list of new books

Your suggestion: "I would like a monthly list of new books that the library has purchased"

Our answer: The library currently adds about 500 new items per month, including adult fiction and non-fiction, reference, audiobooks, movies, and children's materials. This would make publishing a list quite a tall order! We'd like to be able to help you, so could you tell us a bit more about what you'd like? New fiction? New nonfiction? Something else? Also, are you looking for a printed list or something you could access on the library's website? Perhaps you could contact us directly at the Reference Desk to discuss this further.

In the meantime, here are some options to help you find out what's new in the library:

1. Any adult books published in the last 6-9 months are shelved on the New Book shelves at the entrance to the library.

2. Every month the library publishes a list on it's website of upcoming titles by popular fiction authors. Check out a recent list.

3. Subscribe to one of our Next Reads newsletters. Every month you'll receive a newsletter in your email that highlights new titles in the genre you select.

Hope this helps!
