How can I find out which new books have been ordered by MCPL?

You can see lists of titles that are on order in popular categories from the following links:

These links also appear on the left side of our new catalog's home page.

These lists by no means include everything that MCPL has on order, but they do include titles we expect will generate interest in advance.

  1. When I click on this link to find forthcoming titles, I'm directed to the account login. When I try to log in, I keep getting invalid login. Why do I have to log in (and the system won't let me) to find forthcoming titles? This is ridiculously frustrating!

  2. Unfortunately, as of today, 6/10/2013, "Other Resources" via the "old catalog" is no longer available. Only the slider interface remains. The capabilities that many patrons used before today have been removed.

  3. Today (6/11/2013) the "Other Resources" tab has been restored. Thank you for the quick response - much appreciated!!

  4. When I go to the 'on order' section I can see is the slider cover but cannot figure out how to get other information (the normal catalog data) about a forthcoming book. Since judging a book by its cover is of little use, how do I get to the additional information? Thank you!

  5. Lists on on-order titles are now displaying in the new catalog from the links in this FAQ. You'll also find links to these lists on the home page of the new catalog and in the old catalog under Other Resources.

Live Chat

Using this service you may be chatting with MCPL librarians or librarians at other libraries. All librarians will assist you and, if needed, refer your question, to MCPL librarians.

For more than a decade, Montgomery County Public Libraries has offered a live, digital chat reference service. Developed by MCPL staff in 2002, with just a chat box on the main webpage, we quickly expanded to include chat reference options that could be accessed across the website and even in the catalog. This year the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative, of which MCPL is a member, began providing the same type of chat reference service to all its participating members. We are pleased to announce that, by joining forces with the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative - a network of librarians worldwide - MCPL will continue to support our community with the same quality chat reference service that we have offered for the last 11 years, but it will now be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We look forward to continuing our reference chats!
