Have you ever wished you could get help finding a good book to read but didn't have the time to make a trip to the library? Fontana Regional Library is launching a new feature of its website that highlights new and recommended books for readers of all ages across Macon, Jackson, and Swain counties, selected exclusively by staff in our local libraries. The service, called "Check This Out!", is on the library's homepage (http://www.fontanalib.org/) and can be accessed from anywhere.
The site suggests new books in more than 20 different categories and genres, selected by local library staff and available on Fontana Regional Library shelves. A link on the library homepage directs people to "Check This Out!", which opens as a separate webpage with tabs highlighting selected new and noteworthy items on library shelves, complete with descriptions and cover photos.Titles for children and young adults, as well as large print books, are also included. Clicking on a book link takes readers directly to the library catalog, and anyone with a library card in good standing can request the book or add it to a personal reading list.
