At the Wead Library we try very hard to keep the latest best sellers on our shelves for our readers to enjoy. When you walk into the Library, straight ahead on your right will be shelves with the latest arrivals and many of the current best sellers on the New York Times Best Seller List. We also keep a listing, in plain view at our circulation desk, updated each week from the Times, that lists the hardcover best sellers. We are proud to say this list is often 100% owned by our library. We can reserve these popular books for you with a phone call or just a visit in to see us. The list is always right on the checkout desk in plain view. We thought this week we would share with you the books we have that are on the most recent list. It comprises  15 fiction and 16 non fiction books, so a total of 31. We have 21 of the current selections in the Wead Library and here they are.
