Try these tips

   Choose an easy-to-remember username or log in with your library card number.

   Search using normal terms like new kids movies.

   Search new titles, award winners, and recommended reads.

Manage your account

   Choose borrowing history if you want the catalog to keep track of what you've checked out. This information isn't public.

   Organize everything you want to read, see, and hear with the shelves option, as well as everything you already have. If you had Saved Lists in the previous catalog, you can choose to import all of them into your for later shelf.

   You control how much of your activity you’d like to share with others. All other account information is automatically private.

Join the community!

   Keep tabs on what others (including librarians) are reading and recommending. When you find a list you like, click "follow" to get updates.

   Help others find great things at the library by rating items, writing reviews, adding tags, and making recommended lists. Content you create for the catalog will be public, so others can enjoy it, unless you mark it as private.

   Email new favorites to friends, or easily share on social media.
