What's New @ Roselle Public Library

Monday, June 01, 2015

Hate to wait? We do, too!

Are you frustrated by the long wait lists for popular eBook and audio titles in the eMediaLibrary collection? We are, too, and your Library is doing something about it! Since January, Roselle Library has added 54 new adult titles and 58 new children's titles to our Advantage Collection on eMediaLibrary. There are now over 750 titles in the collection - and we are purchasing more each month..

With patrons from 25 libraries sharing the collection we know that those wait times can become very long, so we are purchasing additional copies of popular titles that will only be available to you - Roselle Library card-holders. These copies are Roselle's Advantage Collection.

What does this mean to you? Well, for example, the Library has purchased 3 copies of Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train just for Roselle users. There are 454 people on the waiting list in eMediaLibrary, but only 17 of them are Roselle cardholders. If you place a hold on The Girl on the Train, instead of being 455th on the list, you are really only 18th - big difference! Still a wait, but bearable.

You can see the new titles in the Advantage Collection on the front page of the Library Catalog. Click on the "New eBooks & eAudio" tab.
