Our favorite part at the library is the "Book River" which is a rolling displays of book covers the librarians are currently highlighting. The titles will change with special events or other themes.
The results have a new layout. You can sort by:
format (DVD, audio, book),
age (adult, 10-14, 2-4, etc),
publication year (2011, 2009),
and many more facets.
If you have a favorite author, please sign up to receive an email when a new title arrives. You can request it, too. You can save searches for later or browse book covers by genre (mystery, Christian, suspense, historical, etc).
This search can suggest alternate spellings for tricky words or names.
Ruidoso Public Library is social now, too. Feel free to tag your favorite story, or add tags to books you have read. This helps other searchers decide on a title. These tags could be “fudge recipe” or “training collies” for a novel that also includes such details.
The first page has added a graphic, Scout, to the right of the search bar. Scout looks like a dog and helps our youngest visitors find books through pictures of subjects, topics, or ideas. Scout organizes books by series and only displays books in the juvenile and young adult sections.
If you haven't had a chance to watch someone young use Scout, it is a delight! Please let us know your favorite new feature in the comments:
