There's more to our collections than what you'll find on the shelves!
Popular books are often in demand (and therefore, unlikely to be found just sitting on the shelf), but you can preview and request most of our new books by using our "New & Forthcoming Books" webpage! www.mcpl.us/catalogs/books
(also accessible from our website's main menu under "Catalogs")
These books represent our most recently-ordered Adult Fiction, Adult Nonfiction, Teen Books, Children's Books, and New York Times Best-Sellers. Many of them haven't even arrived at the Library yet, so it is an excellent opportunity for you to get on the request list ahead of time. Once you're on the request list, we will contact you when the book becomes available for pick-up at the MCPL location of your choice.
(Please note that many of these items will be "On Order" for several weeks (or more) before they are released... so if you're looking for something to read in the immediate future, you might want to browse our current holdings in our Library Catalog (V-Cat).)
The "New & Forthcoming Books" webpage is updated sporadically, so if you're interested in being notified as soon as new books have been added, join the Marathon County Public Library's Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/MCPL.Wausau
