Regular customers to Monifieth Library will know about their ‘Fiction Coming Soon’ list.

This is a list of all the fiction titles Angus Libraries have on order from their supplier and customers are able to browse the blurbs and request any titles they wish to read.

It is a very popular service but many customers may not realises that the list is also available online. To browse it visit and click on Library Catalogue and Information Services. From here, simply select the General Library Catalogue and you’ll see a tab for our New Additions.

With the weather showing the way it is nearly time for the two annual reading challenges, Bookbug’s Library Challenge and the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland.

This year the challenge is called ‘Mystical Maze’, so be prepared for lots of myths and legends this summer!

Important dates: Children can pre-register from Monday (June 23). On Friday (June 27), the challenges officially launch with an afternoon of activities between 2 and 4 p.m. Registration week begins on Monday, June 30.

For all the adults heading off on holiday this summer, Monifieth Library has a globe-trotting selection of travel books as well as a range of paperbacks and ‘Quick Reads’ to pack for the trip.
