Our latest new arrivals!

So many new books, so much to read! We have regular customers coming in weekly to see what is new on our shelves. All new arrivals, other than children’s and young adult works, are featured in a special area near our circulation desk. Many new works, as happens in most libraries, have a limited time frame for return, shorter than our normal 28 days. This enables as many patrons as possible to enjoy the latest in fiction and non-fiction.  Once the book has been on “new” status for usually a couple of months, it is then sent to our regular shelves to make room for more new books. Generally, our new books are out each week by Wednesday evenings. Sometimes if we don’t have the new book you are looking for we can get it for you from other libraries. Be aware some libraries don’t let out their new books for borrowing. However we will do our best to get it for you.

This week we have MANY new books going on our shelves for your reading pleasure. We have three new biographies including one on the genius of Michael Jackson.  We also have two new large print offerings, from Susan Mallery. Non- fiction works run the gamut from life in an African slum to a timely book on the rise of ISIS. Patricia Cornwell and Danielle Steel lead the lineup in our new fiction acquisitions.  Here is our listing:
