Customers can create book lists
A recent change to the online catalog allows customers to create and maintain their own personal reading lists in the “My List” section of their account. Books can be added to the lists directly from the catalog, and any number of lists can be created. It is a great way to keep track of books read or books to read in the future.
A video on how to set up and use these book lists can be found on the library’s website at www.stmalib.org. Other how-to videos on using the updated catalog are also available.
