Books & More

Reading Room WEB

 

Books and More is a new category for our web site.  We’ve collocated some of the old favorites such as the catalog , book group selections and downloadable ebooks, etc. and we’ve added some new things too.

 

New Things

  • Zinio – With the help of the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library, we’ve subscribed to digital versions of 45 magazines. About half are familiar titles from the Periodicals Room such as Popular Mechanics, Martha Stewart Living, the EconomistBusinessweek and the New York Review of Books. The other half are either new (Esquire, Thrasher or Outside) or old favorites which have transcended the real world and are now only available in cyberspace such as Newsweek and PC Magazine.  Note: you must have a Larchmont Public Library card to use Zinio.
  • Recent Orders – Generally as soon as we’ve ordered something you can place a hold on it. Often we order things months in advance of the actual publication date.  Recent orders are not complete lists of everything we order, but they do give you an idea of what is coming and they will give you a head start on the holds list.  Usual Suspects is where you’ll find extremely popular authors such as James Patterson or Nora Roberts.
