Get upcoming catalog and event news with “Off the Shelf”

CALS continues to work toward our mission of being the Library Rewritten, and with that brings change and evolution. You might remember a time pre-pandemic when event calendars were available in a printed format. Once branches shut down, those documents were offered digitally. And at the end of last year, we questioned if that was really the best solution. After much discussion, it was decided that a physical, printed item was needed but maybe not quite the one that had served us well almost three years ago.

“Off the Shelf” features new releases in both physical and digital media, exhibitions, and highlights larger system-wide programs. We hope this publication serves our patrons by providing current news about our collection– the foundation of all great libraries. A full schedule of events can still be found at

Here’s wishing you a reading list that grows shorter as the days grow longer.
