FAQ: I Suggested a Title for the Popular Reading Collection, Why Wasn’t It Ordered?

January 24, 2017

Our Popular Reading Collection is comprised of 200 books with 25 to 30 titles being cycled in every quarter based on patron recommendations, staff suggestions and picks from the New York Times’ Best Sellers list. The purpose of the collection is to offer the City of Hope community both fiction and nonfiction titles to browse and borrow.

Our vendor, Brodart Books & Library Services, does a great job of stocking titles and shipping them on demand. However, their focus is on current bestsellers that are available for a limited time only. Therefore, something like Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” is likely unavailable because it was released in late 2014.

Does this mean we can’t get you a copy of “Gone Girl” or anything else? Absolutely not! There is always interlibrary loan, a service whereby a user of one library can borrow books that are owned by another library. Library staff will gladly help you place your order and alert you when it arrives.

If you would like to make a suggestion for the Popular Reading Collection or learn more about interlibrary loan, please contact Brian Chambers, Discovery & Access librarian, at bchambers@coh.org or ext. 87497.
