New Release Alerts Service

July 24, 2008

Our New Release Alerts Service isn’t new, but we wanted to refresh your memory about what a great thing it is. There are thousands of books published in the US every month; many will go unnoticed but others will quickly become bestsellers which also are highly sought-after in libraries by patrons.

The New Release Alerts page on our website is updated every month with 15-20, or so, books to be released by publishers in the next 60-90 days which we believe will be of popular interest to our patrons. We provide a link to each of these books in our catalog which allows patrons to put a hold on the book even before the Library has its copy–and perhaps before the 200 other interested patrons get in the queue. Nice, right?

The New Release Alerts also include books which are expected to be bestsellers even though they’re not by A-List authors or coming from well-known publishers. Recent examples include: The Story Of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski, The Beach House by Jane Green and Love The One You’re With by Emily Giffin.
