Wow? Really? Yes, wow! Really!
With the library’s new Wowbrary email alerts and Wowbrary widget on our homepage, you can see what new materials have been added.
Free "Wowbrary" email alerts showcase our newest items each week.
See the latest bestsellers, movies, music CDs, audio books, children's titles, cookbooks, mysteries, travel guides, health books, science fiction and more purchased by the library. You can even click through to the library’s catalog to see details or place a hold on an item.
Wowbrary alerts are free and do not require a library card. Go to www.wowbrary.org to sign up or learn more.
The new Wowbrary alerts quickly show what's new, whether checked out or not, all from the convenience of one's home, work, or school computer. And the alerts help those interested in just specific topics or age groups. It only takes a mouse click to see the newest arrivals in a particular area or format.
Don't want the alerts in your email, but still want to see what's new?
Just click the "Newest Arrivals" box on the library's homepage!

Tax forms are scarce!
Fewer IRS forms are provided to libraries this year.
