There are a number of options for locating materials at the library. You can start by searching the catalog. If you find the item, you can place a hold on it or, if it is on the shelf at Blackstone, you can call the Reference Department at 203.488.1441, ext. 318 to have it set aside for you.
If no LION libraries own a title, Branford residents can request an interlibrary loan; residents of other towns should make this request through their hometown library.
The new catalog, launched on May 14 allows you to see every format of a title on one screen and place holds from that screen, including from the OverDrive catalog. Search results will also appear for the library’s Kanopy and Hoopla collection, although you will still need to access those titles from the Kanopy and Hoopla websites.
