Go Green! Switch to Email Notifications!

If you haven't done the switch, opt out of paper notices and receive notices of due dates and holds by email. Not only will you help us cut down the use of paper and the cost of postal mail, you won't have to meddle with unexpected delays with postal service and chance missing your holds. We do not use your email for promotional services or share your email with anyone else. It is solely used to notify you when your items are due and when requested items are ready for pick up.

Making the switch is simple. Follow these steps on how to change your preferences via My Account.

Banned Books Week: September 25th - October 2nd

Saturday, September 25th is the beginning of Banned Books Week, a week dedicated to celebrating the freedom to read by highlighting some of the books that faced censorship over the years.

The American Library Association compiles lists of challenged books each year including a list of classic titles, many of which may surprise you. These titles come from reports on book challenges, which are "formal written requests to remove a book from a library or classroom because of an objection to the book’s content."
