Written by Tricia Spaite, Materials Selection & Acquisition Manager, Distribution Center

I’m not one to play the lottery, but I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot when I get my hands on a good book!

Bestselling books—the kind with LONG waitlists—are available NOW in all of our 41 branch libraries, exclusively for our walk-in customers. Step into your closest branch to see which bestsellers are waiting for you—just ask about Lucky Day books or look for the Lucky Day display!

These books come with a six-week checkout period and cannot be renewed, so your neighbors can get lucky too.
