Come and Get It (via Curbside Service)!

Though our building remains closed to the public, we’re still providing items to patrons–and we’re also still getting new items (though the timing of their arrivals is still sometimes disrupted by the pandemic)! I love when new items come into the library–I like to scope out what is new and, um, am not above snatching something that looks especially interesting if nobody else has a hold on it. And I know a lot of our patrons love to browse our new shelf. Of course, that’s not possible right now since patrons can’t come in, so I thought the next best thing would be to bring the new shelves to you–digitally. πŸ™‚

Here’s our new fiction shelf as of the time of this writing. If you’re a regular new fiction browser, you know this is pretty full:


And here’s each shelf for your viewing pleasure. See anything you like? Let us know, and we’ll pull it for you. πŸ™‚

Popular authors on this shelf include V.C. Andrews, Clive Cussler, Christine Feehan, Terry Goodkind, Heather Graham, and James Grippando. If you like historical Christian romance fiction, that Tessa Afshar series on the left might be right up your alley.
And on this shelf, we’ve got Charlaine Harris, Kay Hooper, William W. Johnstone, Robert Jordan, Dean Koontz, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Donna Leon, among others.
Favorite authors here include Sarah J. Maas, Alexander McCall Smith, Kathy Reichs, Fern Michaels, Karen Miller, and Sara Paretsky. If you like Robert B. Parker’s Jesse Stone series–as continued by Reed Farrel Coleman, we have one of the newer-ish ones in that series too.
Patron favorites here include R. A. Salvatore and Jory Sherman. As you can see from the photos, a nice mix of several genres and regular type and large type fiction on all the shelves.

Since taking these pictures, we’ve added some other new titles, including books from patron favorites David Baldacci and James Patterson.

We also have a few new audiobooks (of both the CD and MP3 variety) lurking on the shelf:


Not in the mood for fiction? We’ve got new nonfiction too!

Everything from historical true crime to the latest Consumer Reports buying guide to science reads.
And when I say new nonfiction, that includes new nonfiction audiobooks and biographies.

Since taking these pictures, we’ve added quite a bit of additional new nonfiction, including some test prep books, NOLO legal guides, and how-to books.

Our DVD newbies are overflowing the shelves. Some of them new and some of them new copies of old favorites. It’s a little bit of the Wild West there. πŸ˜‰


And each shelf individually:

Newer series and movies like Big Little Lies, Bombshell, and This is Us. Also most recent season of Vera, and seasons of Columbo–I will never not be excited about Columbo! Also, Jaws: The Revenge. You know you want to watch that. πŸ˜‰











More Big Little Lies plus Harry Potter movies on BluRay. I actually didn’t realize we had the Deadwood movie (which I’ve been wanting to watch) until I gazed intently at this picture.
More Columbo, the last season of Poldark, newer movies like It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and the live-action The Lion King, and more!

Not quite as overflowing as our DVDs and fiction, but our YA section has some new reads too:

I know we have April Henry, Cassandra Clare, and Rick Riordan fans out there. Plus we’ve got sequels of some popular series here and new manga.

Our kid’s section also has a lot of good new stuff:

Everything from new juvenile nonfiction to picture books to chapter books to graphic novels. I spy a lot of Dork Diaries and Big Nate (among others) on there. πŸ™‚
And over here, we’ve got new juvenile items in Spanish, new Raina Telgemeier, new Warriors, and new I Survived.
In the immortal words of Billy Mays, but wait there’s more! Including new picture books!

And last but not least, though it may seem a pointless gesture, I’m still updating the Book Buzz shelf, even if my coworkers and I are the only ones who see it. πŸ™‚
