What's New @ Roselle Public Library

Hate to wait? We do to!

Are you frustrated by the long wait lists for popular eBook and eAudio titles in the eMediaLibrary collection? With patrons from 24 libraries sharing the collection we know that those wait times can become very long, so we are doing something about it!

Each month, Roselle Library purchases additional copies of popular titles that will only be available to you - Roselle Library card-holders. These copies are Roselle's Advantage Collection. There are now over 850 titles in the collection - and we continue to purchase more each month..

What does this mean to you? Well, for example, the Library has purchased 1 copy of Anthony Doerr's All the Light We Cannot See just for Roselle patrons. There are 81 people on the waiting list in eMediaLibrary, but only 2 of them are Roselle cardholders. If you place a hold on All the Light We Cannot See, instead of being 82nd on the list, you are really only 3rd - 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 and eAudio" tab.

(Insider tip! If there is a long wait list at eMediaLibrary, browse over to eRead Illinois. Wait lists are usually much shorter at eRead Illinois)
