How do I find a book?
There are two easy ways to find what you're looking for.
The easiest way to find a book, movie, or magazine is to look at our catalog. The catalog is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To get to the Catalog, go to www.midcolumbialibraries.org and use the search box at the top or select Browse and then click on “Catalog” in the main navigation bar.
- To search, enter whatever information you already know and select go.
- Once in the catalog you can make your search more specific by selecting an option under “Search by.” You can use “Search by” to look for books by the same author, look for materials with the same title, or find materials covering the same topic.
- You can make your search more specific by selecting an option under “Limit by." You can set “Limit by” to only show results that are books, DVDs, books on CD, or whatever specific kind of material you’d like.
Your other option is to call your local branch of Mid-Columbia Libraries. Our friendly staff will be happy to help you find the book, movie, or magazine you need. Click here to look up your local branch’s contact information.
