Bestsellers Express

What is Bestsellers Express?

Bestsellers Express is the section of your library that holds recent and current bestsellers. Just look for this sign!

Bestsellers Express Logo

We call it an "express" collection because it is for people who want to read bestsellers immediately - and also because the books are due back in 7 days instead of the regular 2 weeks.

Will I still be able to place a hold on bestselling titles?

Yes, patrons will be able to place holds on bestselling titles, but not on Bestsellers Express copies. Sometimes a title may be in both the regular circulating collection and the Bestsellers Express collection.

Titles from the Bestsellers Express Collection will not be set aside for the patron -- it is strictly first come, first served so that all patrons have an equal chance to enjoy these books.

Can I check out a Bestsellers Express book if I have a hold on the same title in the regular circulating collection?

Yes, you may check out a Bestsellers Express book even if you already have a hold on a different copy of the same title. Your hold will then be cancelled to free the item up for another reader.

What are the circulation rules for Bestsellers Express?

A copy of these rules can be found on the back and front cover of every Bestsellers Express book. You may return the books to any branch.
