NoveList Makes Finding Books a Breeze!

NoveList is a reader advisory tool embedded on every page of our catalog. It shows you if the book you want is available and, if not, similar books or series of books that are. 

Say you enter "Jack Reacher" in the catalog's search field. Up pops a list of the offerings we have in our collection. Click on the jacket image of the book to find information about that book or scroll down a bit to see all Jack Reacher options. Scroll further to see listings of similar titles, authors and series. You'll have all the information you want without having to do a new search. 

Check it out!
