Visit the Library’s New Book display on the main level and located just beyond the grand stair. Recent additions, complete with book jackets, are specially displayed to catch your eye. The adjacent lounge chairs encourage serendipitous browsing of the new titles. Everything in this recently launched collection is available for immediate checkout. The library adds about 8,000 new titles each year in wide-ranging subject areas (including fiction). Check back often as new titles are added daily to the New Book collection.

Some may recognize this location as formerly housing the Book Sale shelves. Donations of saleable items have declined in the past year so there were fewer items to offer. Instead, there will be a monthly book sale during the first week of every month. The sale cart will be in the lobby near the Circulation Desk. The same low prices continue with 50 cents for paperbacks and a dollar for hard copies unless otherwise marked.
