New Titles Tuesday BONUS! Newly acquired books in print.

In the last half of January, Alloway Library added over 360 new  print titles to the catalogue.  Some of these items will soon appear on the New Titles shelf on the library's main level but others are acquired to replace and supplement our collection and will eventually take their place on the shelves without any fanfare.

Here's a 10% sample of interesting titles, including several works by TWU authors. You can get  any these titles simply by placing a hold in the catalogue - use your library barcode number - and then watch for an email telling you the book you want is ready.   Click on the link to see the full catalogue listing.

For a full list of all 368 items, contact use the comment box below to contact us; your request will not be publicly posted.
