Feature Films by Genre
Here’s a question from the patron survey: How can I get a list of all the feature films you have in a certain genre, like action or comedy?
Go to our web site, www.cooklib.org. Hover over Books, Movies and Music and choose Movies and TV from the drop down menu.
In the top left corner you’ll see a box with the most popular movie genres listed.
Click one to bring up your chosen list in our catalog.
If you want the list to be alphabetical, click the word Title at the top of the list. If you want it to be by date, with the newest titles first, click the word Date instead.
What's Next in Series
Do some of your favorite authors write series? Do you sometimes wonder which of their books are in which series, or the order of books in a particular series? Wonder no more! One of the Library Links on the bottom of every results page in our catalog is What’s Next: Books in Series. Just click that link and enter the author’s name and/or the series name and you will have your answers.
My Reading History
This week's question: Can I somehow make the catalog remember what I've checked out, even after I've returned the items?
That's what My Reading History is for. To turn it on, click the My Reading History button in My Account. You will then see a button that says Activate. Once My Reading History is activated, the catalog will begin to keep a chronological record of the items you check out, with the exception of items borrowed through Interlibrary Loan. You may delete titles from your My Reading History list or de-activate the service at any time by clicking the My Reading History button and then the Delete or Deactivate button.
Some folks who completed our survey asked for more information on library programs, particularly
how to find out about what’s being offered, and how to suggest topics for future programs.
There are several ways to keep informed about programs the library is offering. On our web site (www.cooklib.org)
you can hover over the Calendar & News tab and then choose programs for adults, teens or kids. If you choose
Calendar, you will see a day-by-day display of programs for all ages.
You will also find a link to the calendar on the bottom of every page in our online catalog. We also announce our programs on Facebook and Twitter.
If you want to make learning about our programs totally effortless, sign up for our email blasts to receive flyers
about programs in your email.
To suggest topics for future adult programs, click the Program Suggestions link in the We Want to Hear From You
box in the upper right corner of every page of the Adult Programs section of our web site.
Rate, Review, Comment
Would you like to share your opinions about items in our collection? Our catalog has interactive features designed to make it easy for you to do that. Here's how:
To rate an item, login to the catalog with your card number and password. Search for the title you wish to rate. Below the title you will see a row of five stars. Click on the star that represents your rating – one for poor, three for so-so, five for excellent – you get the idea. The catalog will average all the ratings given to an item. To view or change your ratings, go to My Account and click the My Ratings button.
To the right of the stars are links you can use to review the item, comment on it or add a tag you think will make the item easier for others to find.
