Waiting for a Book on Hold?

Leave a comment

LeanIn SignatureAllThingsIf you’ve put a recent best-seller on hold here at the library, or through our online catalog, and you’re getting tired of waiting for your turn with the book to roll around, don’t lose heart! To make your wait a little shorter we’ve started adding New York Times best-sellers and current-year award-winning books to our collection of e-readers and tablets that you can borrow. As of today (October 22, 2013) we’ve loaded up our Kindle with 14 in-demand fiction titles, and our two Nooks with nine hot non-fiction books. Our two Nexus 7 tablets have all 23 new fiction and non-fiction books. And, each week we’ll scan the New York Times lists to see which new books have  moved into the ranks of best-sellers so we can add them to the e-readers. From now on you’ll  have at least three more options for getting your hands on that hard-to-get book you’ve been waiting for.

Here’s the list of books just added to the e-readers this week:

Kindle eReader and Nexus 7 Tablet

Nook eReader and Nexus 7 Tablet

These are in addition to about 20 books that were previously installed on each device.

Our tablets and e-readers can be borrowed for 14 days, and then can be renewed one time. Call 631 725-0049, ext. 0 for more information. The library staff will be happy to give you a quick tutorial if you’ve never used an e-reader before.

Want to read that best-seller now? Check-out one of our e-readers or tablets and it cold be in your hands today.

The John Jermain Memorial Library is the public library in Sag Harbor, NY. Founded in 1910, the library building and initial collection was a gift from Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage to the people of Sag Harbor. From June 2011 to July 2013 the library will be located at 34 W. Water St., in Sag Harbor, while our historic building is renovated and expanded.
