Search our Catalog Hints

Our Mason County District Library Catalog is searchable in several ways. Want to find a books by a certain author? You can do that. Here’s a search for Louis L’Amour:

In the Find: area, I entered “louis lamour” and changed the search to Author. Capitalization and punctuation don’t matter. As of this post’s authoring, we have 17 L’Amour titles on the shelf.

The default search is Search All Fields, but you can choose Title Starts With, Title Phrase, Author, and Subject. Additional refinements are available with the pop-out bar to the left.

When you find what you are looking for, you can reserve physical items if you are logged in. We will call, email, or text (according to your preference) when the item is ready. Online (OverDrive) items contain a link that sends you to our Up North Digital Collection for fulfillment. See this post (http://www.masoncounty.lib.mi.us/library-card/) if you need a library card, or contact us if you need to retrieve your card number or password / PIN (hint: it’s usually the last 4 digits of your phone number).

Happy reading!
