We get it. Sometimes you just want to know what books are new. If you come into the library you can find new book sections throughout our library. In children’s, we have shelves designated for new picture books, new fiction, and new informational books. In the adult department, we have two displays for new adult fiction and new nonfiction as well as designated shelves for new YA titles. Any of these places are great to browse if you just want something new to read.
But if you can’t come into the library in-person, where can you find new titles?
One easy way is to do a catalog search and limit your search results to a specific “new” section. So, let’s say that I want to see all the new children’s fiction titles.
Start by pulling up the library catalog.
Next, jump down to the “Collection” filter (it will be all the way at the bottom on the left side)
Select “View All” to see all your options
Then scroll until you find the collection you want, we want J New Fiction but you can also look up J New Picture Book, J New Informational, NEW BOOKS – FICTION, NEW BOOKS – NONFICTION, New Books – Young Adult, NEW LARGE PRINT, or New YA Nonfiction to find new books in those areas.
Click “Include” in the top right corner and you’ll pull up a list of all the books that are currently in our J New Fiction section – even if they’re checked out!
You can read book summaries and place books on hold without leaving the comfort of your own home.
