Lucky Day

Our Lucky Day collection provides an additional copy of highly popular books for spontaneous use, without the traditional waiting lists. Nobody can place holds on these items; it’s first come, first served. That means you might not need to wait at all for the most popular new titles. New titles will be added each month so check back often. You’ll never know what you might find at the Library – it might just be your Lucky Day!
