Don’t miss a thing with 'Wowbrary'

-A A +A

The Los Alamos County Library System is offering its patrons free “Wowbrary” email alerts that showcase the library’s newest items ordered each week.
The email alerts feature the latest bestsellers, movies, music CDs, audio books, children’s titles, cookbooks, mysteries, travel guides, health books, science fiction and more purchased by the library.
It’s so easy to sign up: go to wowbrary.org to sign up or learn more. Emails received each Saturday will list all the new items ordered so the public can place a hold on their favorites right away.
“This is a great new way to enjoy and use your public library more,” Gwen Kalavaza, Electronic Resources Manager of the Los Alamos County Library System said. “People are truly amazed when they see in one place just how many great new titles we order each week, which they can reserve and borrow at no cost. And we cover all age groups and many diverse interests.”
Kalavaza notes that the new Wowbrary alerts are convenient and quickly show what’s new, whether an item is checked out, or not at both Mesa and White Rock libraries, all from the convenience of one’s home, work, or computer.
The alerts help those interested in just specific topics. “It only takes a mouse click to see the newest arrivals appropriate for your child or teen. There’s a separate section on parenting. Teachers can quickly spot new resources for their classes,” children’s librarian Angie Manfredi said.
Wowbrary alerts are free and do not require a library card. Go to wowbrary.org to sign up or learn more.
