The mobile catalog offers a great new way to find items – just type the first couple of letters for each word to get results. Type “row gob” for J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” For “Gossip Girl” titles, type ”gos gi”. To find a specific “Gossip Girl” title, like “Because I’m Worth It,” you only have to type “gos gi be.”
