Adult Biographies Have Moved

You no longer have to make two trips to two different areas for related reading. All adult Biographies, including Large Print, Audiobook, and Graphic Novels are now integrated into the non-fiction collections.

Look for the “Biography” sticker on the book spine when browsing books and you’ll find them cozied up with their counterparts.

You can still browse biographies together in the catalog, too. Here’s how:

1. Click on advanced search

2. Select Genre from drop down menu and type in biography

3. Under Format, select Large Print, Audiobook, Book, Graphic Novel (or whichever applies to your preferred format)

4. Hit Search to browse Biographies

All-Season “Perkout”

We just added another perk to having a library card.

Three area athletic facilities, Body Boutique, CrossFit Lawrence, and Summit Gym have collaborated with Gwen, our Health Librarian, to offer a free 1-month pass to library cardholders.

Pick one up at the ask desk, get on the holds list—and get moving!

We have four passes total, you can only check it out once a year, but you get 30 days of free access to see if joining a gym is your jam or not!

The passes will be treated like any other library item: there will be a holds list, they have a return date, and they’re absolutely free. You must be 18+ to use this collection.

Questions? Email our Health Librarian Gwen or our Info Services Coordinator Melissa.
