New Books

This just in! We have recently acquired two more books from the ALA Top Ten for Teens. All Hallow's Eve: 13 Stories by Vivian Vande Velde is a collection of short stories that is guaranteed to be a Halloween classic. Bad Kitty by Michele Jaffe sounds like a lot of fun. It is a murder mystery that takes place in Las Vegas. The latest book by Stephenie Meyer is here, Eclipse, as is the latest Anthony Horwitz thriller, Snakehead.
If there is a book you want to read and we don't have it, we have a Suggestion Box. We do our best to get these books for you. Write down the title and author on one of the slips of paper in the box. We try to fill these requests the best we can.

Did you know you can check your library account from home? From the Napa High Website, go to the library page and click on Web Collection Plus. On the far right of the toolbar there is a button called "My Info". Enter your ID number where it says Barcode and your last name for the Password. You can see what books you have out, their due date, and any fines or holds you currently have.
It is possible to place a hold on books yourself, too. If you search for a book title and find one you really want, click on "Place Hold". When it is returned to the library, we will be notified that you placed a hold on it and a note will be sent to you forthwith that it is available. If your hold is for a book that is already in, it will not be checked out to anyone else until you come in to check it out. How easy is that?!
