Click on “Subjects” to narrow down by genre.

Two titles can be checked out, for three weeks.

If you want to return your book earlier so you can check out new ones, go back to your checkouts page.

Underneath the cover picture, there is a button that says “Return Title.”

When you click on it, you will be asked to rate the book 1-5 stars (Be kind! Be honest!). Then click on the green “Yes” button to return it. Now you can choose more books!

Happy reading!!!
