Finding Books

The circulating book collection is arranged according to the Library of Congress classification system—broad subjects broken down into an alpha-numeric call number found on the spine of the book.

To determine if the library has the book or books you need, you can search for the title, author or subject in the library's online catalog, which can be found below or at the top of the library homepage.
