The New York Times Best Seller Lists

Every week at the Wead Library many new works of literature arrive. It is easy to forget that these books must be purchased, often before publication. Our Director, Susan Wool, has a keen eye for what books will become best sellers. She does a great job of making sure we have the books on our shelves when the New York Times  publishes it’s weekly list. Our patrons know they can count on our library to have much of the best new literature available.   Out of 36 books currently on the list, the Wead Library has 31 volumes available for our patrons.
