You have many options when it comes to finding and using books. The Grafton Library Discovery Service (GLDYS), allows you to search for books and ebooks both here at Grafton library and in libraries around the world. If you're just looking for books, make sure to pay attention to the limiters on your search, because GLDYS also allows you to search for articles and video materials.
