The Library is introducing a new collection, called Sizzlers, a small collection of high demand titles that do not accept requests or renewals and so are more accessible to browsing patrons. The largest part of a Sizzlers collection is made up of high demand titles with long requests lists, primarily adult fiction with some non-fiction and YA as requests dictate. Sizzler copies can be found on the New Book shelf in every branch ready for checkout!
Checkout is limited to one Sizzler book per patron and must be returned in 14 days with no renewals. An overdue Sizzler will block your account. When you return the Sizzler book, if you hand it in to staff we can clear it from your account immediately, in case you get lucky and find another Sizzler to check out. Sizzler books are marked with a 14-day checkout label on the spine, and a big Sizzler label on the front cover.
Initial offerings include James Patterson's Cross My Heart, Janet Evanovich's Takedown Twenty, Amy Tan's Valley of Amazement, and oh yes, Michael Connelly's The Gods of Guilt. Next time you find yourself number 82 on the holds list for the latest Michael Connelly, visit your branch and see if it’s your lucky day—it just might be on the shelf!
