Photo by Nikoline Lauritzen on UnsplashWe know the closure of our libraries has created a gap in our community, especially for the dedicated readers that came in weekly and even daily to pick up their holds. We miss you! Let’s channel any frustrations of missing out towards creating a wishlist of all the books, movies, sounds, games, and other things that may pique your interests. While you can’t place holds at the moment, you’ll be happy to know the library catalog comes with list-making features, so you can place holds on titles of interest later.

To get started, you will need to log into your library account in the catalog. Look for the blue button in the upper right corner with the words “Log in / My WCCLS”. Once logged in, you will see your username in the upper right corner. Then the fun begins, do a search, find an item that is of interest and then click on the “For Later” button. The book will be added to your For Later Shelf. There is no limit to the number of titles that can be added to the For Later Shelf. Dream big.

To view your For Later Shelf, click on your user name in the upper right corner. A drop down menu will appear, and under the My Collections section you find your For Later Shelf as well as other shelves and access to your lists. Keep in mind your shelves are set to be public, you can change them to private through your settings. For detailed instructions see Privacy Settings on the WCCLS catalog. And for more information about shelves see the Shelves help page.

Want to discover the newest materials added to the WCCLS catalog?  Type into the search box the term “new” and a format (books, audiobook, picture books, movies, music, etc). The search results will include materials from the past 190 days. You can further limit the search with options listed under the Filter your search results” column to the left of the search results.

If you had a hold waiting for you, it will be on the shelf for you when our doors open again. We miss you and hope to get our library materials to you again soon. In the meantime, feel free to contact us with any questions you might have about the library and our resources.
