Using Book Lists

The Library can display lists of titles, including New York Times Bestsellers, which you may find interesting to browse. To view them, select a list from the drop-down 1, and the titles in the list will slowly cycle in the display like a slideshow. To pause the slideshow, click the Pause button 2. Click on any title in the list to bring it up in the display. Use the navigation arrows 3 to move through the list.

Any title you select will display information, like author, publication date, ISBN, etc. For some titles, you can click links to more information, such as a book review or an excerpt 4. You can also click the Find in My Library button 5 to search for the title in your Library.

How to change personal information

I was not able to find how to change my e-mail

Hi,
You can update your email address when you log on to your account using the classic catalog (http://classiccat.ppld.org). Use the library card and PIN fields in the upper right portion of the page to log on and then click "My Account." Toward the bottom of the My Account summary page, you will see "Update Your Email Address and/or Phone Number." We have asked the vendor for the new catalog to incorporate this feature in a future upgrade. You can also call or visit the library to update your email address.
