Say hello to our new online catalog!  The new catalog makes searching for books, movies, and music easier.  Keeping track of what you’ve read, watched and listened to is also easier, with virtual shelves. 

Did you love something, or hate something?  You can let others know by rating it.  Add tags, comments, similar titles and more.  You can share lists with friends, or keep them totally private – what and how much you share is entirely up to you.
