There are several major bummers about closing the library building to the public. Top of the list for us staff is not working in the bustling and dynamic company of our patrons. We’re hearing that top of the list for patrons is the inability to browse the collection. We feel you. Browsing in a library is where the magic happens, the heart of intellectual serendipity and discovery. There’s nothing more exciting (in our humble opinion) then walking into a library to look for one thing and discover another.
In an attempt to simulate sweet serendipitous browsing, we’ve pulled together some digital shelves for you. We know it’s not the same, but hey, nothing is these days…except for the solace and escape provided by a good book.
Follow the links, all lists are sorted newest to oldest. Click here for a quick and dirty “How to Request in the Online Catalog” tutorial.
