Hoping to read a new release but it is never on the shelf? We always encourage people to place a hold for a desired item rather than just wait to strike it lucky. You can do this yourself online anytime or ask us to do it for you. The more holds on a popular item, the more copies we will buy (our goal is to have at least one copy for every four names on the waiting list).

We now request registration for most adult programs and appreciate knowing if you plan to attend. Some technology classes, for example, can accommodate only as many participants as we have available computers. For larger gatherings, we want to make sure we have enough chairs set up and enough refreshments! And in winters like this one, it is helpful to be able to contact all expected attendees in the case of weather cancellations. We also ask that you cancel if you are unable to attend a program for which you have registered. This allows us to offer a spot to someone on the waiting list and make sure we have a full house. Registration (and cancellation) can be done online or by calling us.

Thanks for your help!
