More Improvements to our Website!

two largeWe've made some more changes to our website, and we think you'll find it even easier to use. Dropdown menus are no longer needed, as our popular online resources and other sub topics are listed on the right-hand side of the screen. We've added handy buttons along the left-hand side of the screen so you can click to our searchable events calendar, contact us, and connect to our Facebook and Twitter pages. The cog icon on the left side of the page allows for website translation and text size changes. Links to the most frequently visited areas of our site appear at the bottom of each page so you can easily navigate around the site.

We are happy to once again offer the Newly Ordered and Most Requested Titles lists again! These can be found on the Books Movies Music page.

Our improved website should be viewable on all sizes of devices. As always, we welcome your input. Give our new site a try and then let us know how it's working for you.

Let's look at the areas being changed. Click read more to see the changes in greater detail.
