We implemented the new catalog based on customer requests for tools to organize, share, and socialize around their love of books, media, ideas, and knowledge.
The new interface will simplify searching and make it easier to find what you want to read, watch, listen to and more. You can search just like you do on Google, with natural language and autocompletion.
Now you can find them in one place. Use the filters at the top to look for different types of digital and physical items, different genres, ages and languages. OR type phrases such as 'new books' or 'new movies' or 'new teen graphic novels' into the search box.
Our new catalog also allows you to easily read reviews from critics and library users. You can even add your own! To see reviews, click on the title of the item, then scroll down.
See at a glance if it's available in other formats, such as eBook, eAudiobook, and Large Print.
If you opted in to keeping your Reading History in our old catalog, it will transfer easily to the new one. Just enable Borrowing History in our new catalog to complete the transfer.
