VIRTUAL BOOKSHELVES

We know it’s hard to know what item you want when you aren’t able to browse our collection! That’s why the library is pleased to bring you our virtual bookshelf where you can browse all of our new books online! Photos will be updated weekly.

Holds can be placed through the Monarch Catalog and picked up through our Curbside Pickup service.
