Ways of Looking at What We Have

We have a total of 7229 items at the moment. Some are duplicates, especially in the native-related titles. (We have three copies of Hilary Stewart's Cedar. Doesn't everyone?) The total number of unique titles is 6042.

Of native-related items about 725 are children's and young adults' (elementary, middleschool and highschool ages), about 1450 are for adults.

We also have 175 books for GED students, some general nonfiction, a browsing collection of fiction, 700 DVDs, 61 CDs... Oh, and 421 library users.

Reminder: The online catalog, which comes through LibraryThing, is always available. You can sort materials out into 'collections' to zero in on what you are most interested in. You can now look separately at
    All Adult Books
    Adult Culture Books
    All Children's Books
    Children's Culture Books
    DVD/VHS/Audio

Anytime you go to the catalog, you can pull out one of these five separate views by clicking on the pulldown that says "All Collections" or "Your Library"

and choosing the one you want.

Purely for the pleasure of admiring them en masse, any time you have one of these lists of titles, try clicking on the "Covers" button. You end up with something wonderful, like the display in the previous post.
