The Shelby County Public Library (SCPL) is excited to offer its patrons free “Wowbrary” email alerts that showcase the library’s newest items each week. The alerts feature the latest bestsellers, movies, music CDs, audio books, children’s titles, cookbooks, mysteries, travel guides, health books, science fiction and more purchased by the library. 

“This is a great new way to enjoy and use your public library more,” says Janet Wallace, Director of the Shelby County Public Library. “People are truly amazed when they see in one place just how many great new titles we purchase each week, which they can reserve and borrow at no cost. And we cover all age groups and many diverse interests.” 

The new Wowbrary alerts are extremely convenient and quickly show what’s new, whether checked out or not, for all SCPL branches, all from the convenience of one’s home, work, or school computer. 

The alerts help those interested in just specific topics, as Shelby County Public Library children’s librarian, Brandy Graves, points out. “It only takes a mouse click to see the newest arrivals appropriate for your child or teen. 

There’s a separate section on parenting. Teachers can quickly spot new resources for their classes.” Wowbrary alerts are free and do not require a library card. Sign up here
