• New InfoSoup Coming Soon!

    This September our online catalog, InfoSoup, is getting a new look. The new InfoSoup will let you search not only library materials, but also select online databases for article information. You'll also be able to checkout ebooks from Overdrive directly from the catalog, while popular features like saving lists or tracking checkout history will still be available.

    You are invited to check out the new catalog starting now, with the official switch over to the new InfoSoup happening mid to late September. If you have questions about the new look, or how to search for items, please let us know.

    When you’re hungry for answers, give the new InfoSoup a taste!

  • Fox Arts Network FAN Pass

    We're excited to announce our newest program, FAN Pass. We've partnered with over 20 local educational, art and entertainment organizations to bring this unique program to you. Starting mid-September we will have various free offers for you to "check out" from our partner organizations. A display with all of the offers will be set up near our Children's Services entrance beginning September 14.

    How does it work?
    1. Select an offer of your choice from the display located near Children's Services.
    2. Bring the laminated FAN Pass display card to the library Information Desk, along with your library card.
    3. Staff will give you a voucher in exchange for the display card. Once you receive the voucher, there is no need to worry about returning anything to the library.
    4. The organization you choose your offer from will collect the voucher in exchange for admission. Most organizations will require you to contact them in advance to receive admission tickets. Contact information for organizations, along with instructions on how to redeem your offer, can be found on the voucher you receive.
