Every day, somewhere in the world, books are being written (probably not in their entirety, of course) and published.
Books are ordered, shipped and delivered.
Packages are opened, and that's when the excitement peaks.
At your local library, a book might be ordered for one of a number of reasons...for instance, the non-fiction books Secret Florence and The Italian Table were both purchased to fulfill memorial requests.
On the other hand, James Patterson is a "popular demand" kind of a guy—his novels (I, Michael Bennett and Guilty Wives, for instance) frequently have a reserve list as soon as they're released.
No matter the reason for the order, when it arrives, the books contained are greeted with much enthusiasm; it's a little like celebrating a birthday—often!
Whatever your interest, the Frank Sarris Public Library strives to meet your needs.
No matter whether you gravitate toward the new releases or you prefer to spend time browsing, waiting for something to catch your eye and call out "Take me home!", we're bound to have something you'll enjoy.
