    Hold Shelf Surprise!

    Have you ever had that long anticipated phone call or email that the book you have been waiting months to read is FINALLY available for you to pick up at the library??  Or how about when you receive a phone call or email and you’re completely caught off guard that you have a book waiting for you, but surprised none the less? Both of these are great feelings for the avid library user and now, the library is offering a service to you so you can experience those elated emotions on a monthly basis.

    Enter the Hold Shelf Surprise.  This program is for our adult patrons and hopes to offer a solution to feeling like you have nothing to read in between waiting for your requested holds to come in.  Upon registering, you will have 1-3 books placed on the hold shelf for you monthly.  These books will be based off your indicated reading interests.  You can register at any of the information desks within the library or click here to register online.

    Once you have registered, I will start pulling books for you monthly.  If you are unhappy about the books you are receiving, you can let me know on the comments card that will be placed in each surprise hold.  This allows me to know if I’m heading in the right direction and it allows you to change your interests if you experience burn out on one particular topic.

    The main goal of this program is to show our patrons that we have a plethora of books they will enjoy but may not know about.  We can give you author read-a-likes, books on the same topic or set in the same time period, or a similar series to the one that kept you up at all hours of the night.  And, if you’re lucky, you may even stumble upon a new genre or topic that you didn’t even know you love.  We want to give you something to look forward to here at the library.  And hopefully, we can surprise you as well!
