Library Catalog

To search our library and other libraries for books, videos and audio books: click the Keene Valley Library Catalog. In the search box window type the name of the author, the title OR the subject you are seeking. If our library owns the book, it will indicate the status of the book; “checked out” and “due date” tells you when it may be available. “In transit” means it is on the way to another library. “Checked in” indicates it is on the shelves.

Once you have made your selection by clicking on the title more information will be found. In addition, there will be subject headings in the entry, and on the left side bar that lets you surf for more information. If the book is not in our library, there is a button bar below the entry that takes you to other libraries to continue the search.

Placing a Request: Once you have found the book, you may place a request for the book. Click on the request bar. Enter your 14-digit barcode number from your library card and your 4 digit pin number. (Pin numbers are assigned when you register for a card.). Confirm the request. We will call you to let you know when the book is delivered to the Keene Valley Library. It generally takes about a week. Deliveries within the system arrive on Friday.
