Good news and bad news

Great news! The City of Gold Coast library service has a new library management system with improved search functionality, past borrowing records and a book cart that allows readers to place bulk holds and create to-be-read lists.

We’re super excited!

The bad news is that the embedded links and some of the images here on book coasters are mostly to our old system, which means that those links are going to break.

Nobody likes broken links.

We’re doing our best to repair them, but, with over 2,000 posts this may take a little time.

If you want to put a hold on any of the items we’ve reviewed here on book coasters, please check out our new catalogue at and enter the title to search.

We hope you like the new system as much as we do – please leave any feedback below, or talk to your local branch library staff when you are in the library.
