Just go to the library website at www.ci.yachats.or.us click on the Library tab and below the pictures of the library you'll find the catalog link. Or bookmark it directly at http://catalog.ourlibraryonline.com/start.php?a=YACHATS
Reserves will be processed three times a week and you'll receive a call when your reserved material is ready for pick-up at the library.
So many holidays this month, Groundhog's Day, Valentine's Day, Presidents Day and on top of that it's a Leap Year and we'll have a 29th day this February.
Whatever you choose to celebrate we have books for you, there are histories and biographies on the Presidents including a new bestseller: Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten War That Changed American History by Brian Kilmeade. We have lots of romance and love stories both fiction and nonfiction, many as mysteries, but love is a mystery isn't it? Come in and post a heart-shaped recommendation for a favorite book about love on our “Good Reads” board.
In the kids room don't miss Pete the Cat: Valentine's Day is Cool by James and Kimberly Dean, A Garden for Groundhog by Lorna Balian or Grumpy Groundhog by Maureen Wright.
We are still accepting donations for the upcoming Friends of the Library Book Sale, March 25 and 26. Please call us ahead if you are dropping off a large quantity of books, 541-547-3741. The donations have been generous - be sure to mark the dates on your calendars and don't miss out.
