Many of you will be required to read at least one book (maybe more) over the summer.  Before you go out and buy those books, you may want to try the library.  We’ve got local public and private schools’ summer reading lists, and can help you locate the books.  Search our catalog now.

If the book you want is checked out, then we can put a hold on it for you.  We stock multiple copies of the popular books, so you won’t have to wait all summer to get them.  Find out how to win prizes by reading.
