Read The Maltese Falcon

You ask, “How do I find The Maltese Falcon”? How to find the book to read, that is. If you can find the real Falcon, there ought to be a prize!

You’re ready to read! Some of us love having our own personal copies of books to mark up, read in the bathtub, weep silently onto…and some books are definitely worth owning your own personal copy of, and The Maltese Falcon certainly is!

If you’d like to go the library route and borrow the book from us, we are here to help! (But no marking up, bathtubbing, or silent weeping.) We have copies coming into the library now, so place a hold request on a copy through the library’s catalog. Remember to have your library card number and PIN number handy.

We will be getting in large print, and audio CD copies of the book too, so you can request those as well.

If you like to download audio titles, The Maltese Falcon is available for digital download to your favorite device through the North Carolina Digital Library, one of our online resources.

And quite a few of our branches also have the DVD of the 1941 classic film, so check the library catalog for those branches, as well, and enjoy the movie at home.
