To see all recent acquisitions, visit the library’s new book shelf located by the circulation desk.

The featured new books on our Flickr are photographed individually, so you can see new items as they become available. The Library blog’s sidebar contains the five most recent titles. Additionally, each photo has a link to the new item’s record in the catalog, making it easy to find the book you are looking at.

We will post new books as they become available, so check back often or subscribe to our Flickr’s RSS feed.
