The Fiction Department is now offering our popular "Book My Favorites" program in large print and audio book (CD) formats in addition to the regular print format. Please note that your choice of format applies to all selected authors. Should your title not be available in your requested format, you will be placed on hold for the regular print copy.

In addition to offering new formats, we've also added the following authors as options for automatic reserves:

Mary Kay Andrews

Many of the back issues of our popular magazines are available for a three-week checkout period. Popular subjects include business, cooking, crafts, entertainment, health, home decorating, home improvement, sports, travel and weddings. Several times a year, we purchase special interest magazines that are also available for checkout. These subjects range from cars to crafts to photography, sports, tattoos and cinematography.

Stop by the newstand on the Plaza to see the current issues of our magazines, though not all of our current issues are displayed there. Business magazines are displayed in the business area of the Nonfiction Department and Spanish language magazines are displayed in the Spanish area of the Fiction Department.
