Welcome to Loutit District Library’s new and improved catalog. Check out some of the key features and get started today.



Search now works like Google and the rest of the web. Catalog searches use natural language detection to ensure that when you search with keywords like “new music” or “kids movies,” you will easily find what you are looking for. Spell something wrong? That’s ok! The catalog will suggest the correct spelling. Use filters for format, genre and content to help you narrow in on exactly the items you want from the library.


User_Exp1Get started by creating an account! The new online catalog features personal recordkeeping tools: My Profile, My Shelves, My Lists, and more.  Access your borrowing history and make themed lists or shelves.



Community1Easily browse new titles, award winners, and lists created by library staff and other readers. Ratings, comments, and tags help you evaluate and choose the perfect book, DVD, or CD for you from the library’s collection. Write your own to help others find great materials.
