Cool way to find characters in books!

Let's say that you read a book about 20 years ago and you've long since forgotten the name of the author or title.

NOW THERE'S HELP

At Worldcat you can simply type in the name of one of the characters from the book and the system will search the database for that character's name and lead you to the author/title of the book.

PLUS

If you type in your zipcode it will search the holdings of libraries in your area to see if they happen to have that particular title!!!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately our library isn't associated with OCLC so you won't be seeing our holdings in the results, BUT, we can get the title for you for free via Inter-Library Loan.
