How do I delete books from My Library?

Deleting books from My Library is a feature that many people like. If you get rid of a book or just no longer want that book in My Library, you don’t have to keep it in your database.

To delete a book: right click on it then click on Delete Selected Books from the drop down menu.

There are two ways to delete more than one book at a time:

1. If the books are located next to each other, click on the first book and then click on the last book while holding down the shift key. All the books between the first and last book selected will become highlighted. Right click anywhere in the highlighted section and select Delete Selected Books from the drop down menu.


2. If the books are not located next to each other, click on the first book and then click on the next book while holding down the control key. Both books will become highlighted. Continue this process (clicking on a book while holding down the control key) until all the books you want to delete are highlighted. Right click on any one of the highlighted books and select Delete Selected Books from the drop down menu.

How do I print reports from FinderWare?

The best way to go about printing reports is to print from My Library. To print the information you want, you will need to select the criteria for your report. Go to Edit Column View under Administration. From this section, you can select columns for My Library and in what order you want them. Select the columns by checking the boxes to the left of each criterion. Put the columns in order by highlighting one and then using the up and down arrow buttons to the right of the list. After you select your columns and put them in order, go back to My Library. You can print your entire library or do a search for a genre/keyword/author/etc. and print that list of books. Highlight the books you want printed (click on one and then hold down the shift key as you click on the last book to highlight a section or hold down the control key to select multiple individual books). Click on the File tab at the top of the screen then click on Print from the drop down menu.

TRUE BELIEVER by Nicholas Sparks

Reviewed by FinderWare Staff Editor

In true Sparks style, True Believer is full of love, human relationships, and an unexpected ending. With a plot that never tires, Sparks is able to weave a story about two people, each untrusting of love, and their entwining lives. The story begins with Jeremy Marsh, a scientific journalist, traveling to Boone Creek, North Carolina to investigate a story of ghosts appearing in a graveyard. He is called there by Doris McCellan, who is a diviner able to tell the sex of unborn babies. Doris calls Jeremy, with his ability to find the truth, to call the ghosts what they really are. While researching the ghosts, Jeremy comes across the librarian of Boone Creek, and Doris’ granddaughter, Lexie Darnell. This is where the romantic twist of the story begins. Throughout the book, Jeremy continues to investigate the strange phenomenon of ghosts in the cemetery while growing closer to Lexie.

Although this is not one of Nicholas Sparks’ best books, it is still worth the read. He develops his characters realistically and unravels the plot at an easy pace. 3 ˝*
