Dewey’s reading The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan! This book’s call number is J Riordan. But! If you click on the link in this blog post you will notice that the call number listed for this book is different. The call number listed is “ XX(332147.1)“. What does that mean? If you find a book in the catalog and the call number starts with “XX” that means that the book is an eBook! It is a book you read on your computer, e-book reader, tablet, or phone.

Did you know the library has free eBooks? You can find eBooks in the library’s regular catalog, but the best place to search for eBooks is on the library’s Overdrive page. (Go to, click “Digital Downloads”, click “Download eBooks”.) Do you know what’s great about eBooks? You can download and read them even when the library is closed! Isn’t that great?
