Ever wonder how to find non-fiction titles that meet your reading tastes? Do you love biographies? Perhaps you're an armchair traveller. Or maybe you get out the chef's hat and apron on the weekend and try exotic dishes to dazzle your friends.
Now you can find exactly what YOU want to read. It's called Non-Fiction Connection. It's an online resource - part of a large pool of electronic resources on the library's website. You can search by author, title or key word, or simply browse through hundreds of subject areas.
It's also possible to search both fiction and non-fiction titles at the same time, and then limit the results to either fiction or non-fiction.
Once you find a title that appeals to you, check the library's catalogue to see if we have the title. If we don't, you can suggest that the library purchase it, or submit an interlibrary loan request.
Have fun. Experiment. Try it out and see what you think. We think you'll be impressed...
