About Us

Collections

Borrow books, check out movies, download eBooks, read magazine articles. And that's just for starters.

Use our catalog to find what you're looking for. With over 1.2 million items, we have what you want, from the latest best sellers, to children's books, to graphic novels, to how-to manuals, and beyond. And you can borrow more than you might expect: 

If what you want isn't immediately available at your library, you can place a hold. We'll deliver it for you to pick up, and even send you a notice when it's ready. 

We have almost 20,000 eBooks and eAudiobooks to download and enjoy from home to your computer or on the go to your mobile device. And our eResources offer tutoring, up-to-date business information, magazine and journal articles, language learning, product reviews, study guides, and on and on.
