To better serve you, we’re upgrading the Library’s public catalog!

Click here to start exploring now!

 

What does this mean, exactly? For starters, we’ve got a whole new look:

Starting Your Search

   Search Box. This is where you enter what you’re looking for, such as the Author, Title, Genre, or any other keyword.

   Account Log In. This is where you log in to your library account, adjust your settings, create book lists, and check information about the Library.

   Library Resources. This is where you will find links for Library resources. You can access databases, look up information on museum passes, book club kits, and more.

   Digital Downloads. From here, you can go to Library E-resources: Cloud Library, Hoopla, and rbDigital.

 

 

You can narrow your search by clicking on the two drop-down menus as seen below.

                                             

 

If you need to start over, just click the Home icon  on the top left.

 

Refining Your Search

After your initial search, you can refine your results even more. Using the panel on the left, you can include or exclude terms like Location, Format, Author, and more!

 

Viewing Results

Once you’ve completed and/or filtered your search, this page will show you what the Library has available. Click on the thumbnail image of the result you’d like to see more information about. This is also where you can place a hold or have information on a book sent to you via text (you need to be signed in to do this – make sure you have your library card and PIN number ready).

So those are the basics! If you need help using our new system please feel free to come to the Reference Desk or call 732-873-8700 ext. 111 with any questions you have.

Thanks for reading!
