Time Moves Sloooooowly…
…in Library Land. On June 22 I place a hold on Charlaine Harris latest Sookie Stackhouse novel Dead in the Family. Today, the 12th of September I canceled that hold while still 5th in line (I’d gotten and read one of the large print copies in less than a week after realizing they were available). That’s nearly THREE MONTHS waiting for a book to be available to read. When there was a new Hairy Pothead novel released they bought hundreds of copies (and then months later sold the majority off at $2 each for a net loss of… an assload of money). When Danielle Steel comes out with a new books there’s dozens and dozens of copies available.
I think a lot of it might have to do with the age and mind set of the staff and directors of the county library system. I don’t believe they’re in touch with ALL of their patrons. Maybe I should run for a position on the board. There needs to be some life given to the Sci-Fi/Fantasy section, it’s anemic and dying.
