Pelham Public Library Resources More Accessible

Check out our new catalogue and e-books online. Thanks to a grant from the Trillium Foundation, the catalogue is accessible from any computer. To find the books from our "banned book" list, use "challenged book club" as a keyword. You can reserve books online if you have a Pelham Public Library card.

As well, electronic books have been added to the catalogue. They are great for school projects since you can record bookmarks and electronic notes that will be available each time you open the book. A dictionary and active links are also helpful. For an example of a banned book in e-book form, check out "Lord of the Flies." Without a membership, you are able to view a book for 15 minutes. In order to check out the book, you need to register from one of the Pelham Library's computers.
