Tech Tuesday

techtuesday

Since it’s national library week, we thought we’d share more about our library for this week’s Tech Tuesday.  Did you know you can browse our books and movies from the comfort of your home?  If you’re wondering if we have a book or movie, visit our online card catalog here or on our Browse Online page.

If we don’t have an item you’re looking for, you can search the inter-library loan site (SILO) to see if it is available in another library in Iowa.  If so, the library can borrow the book from the other library for you.  To browse SILO, search here or on our Browse Online page.
