Most Wanted Books List

As another way of trying to better meet the demand for books, we list a few titles each week in the newspaper that our readers are requesting. This week the library has 951 active requests for books. These will be titles for which there is a large current demand or older titles for which there is an ongoing need for additional copies. If you have a new or gently used copy of any of the requested titles and would like to donate it to the library, it would be most appreciated. To date, the library has received 206 of the “most wanted” books.
