Tip from the Librarian

Do you have a long commute to work? Do you hate cleaning the house knowing you could be reading? Are you just obsessed with books and want to read all day long? Then audiobooks are for YOU!

Rogers Free Library offers two types of audiobooks – books on CD and digital downloads. Listen to CDs in the car, CD player, DVD player, or gaming system. Digital downloads can be played on computers, tablets, MP3 players, and smartphones! Get lost in a world of fantasy while ironing dress shirts! What could be better? For more information visit our catalog(s): catalog.oslri.net and ezone.oslri.net

Tip from the Staff

There is nothing worse than waiting a week for a good book, coming here to pick it up, only to find you accidentally ordered the movie or cliff notes. Let us help you with that. When you are searching our catalog for say, Where the Crawdads Sing, you may find yourself with a long list of items to choose from. The fastest way to work with this list is to filter it by type using the bar on the top right of the search:

You can filter your search by adult, children, teen, magazines, large print, graphic novel or even by library branch!

If that doesn’t work for you, each list has an icon directly to the left of the item. Look carefully at each icon:

Each icon is clearly labeled, which is a great help!

We hope this helps you master the art of searching the catalog!
