Have It Today Collection

HIT Collection

Have you heard about the new HIT (Have It Today) Collection at the Library?! It’s a collection of some of the hottest new books, in multiple copies, that are available to check out for 1 week (there is no fee).

It’s a quick turn-around collection much like our ‘Quick Flix’ DVDs. The loan periods are shorter so that the copies keep moving quickly from one patron to the next. There are no holds lists for these materials – it’s strictly a ‘first come/first served’ service! This means that it’s easier to get the book or DVD you want, when you want it!

As always, if you’re ok with waiting, all of the books in the HIT Collection (and all of the DVDs in our Quick Flix DVD Collection) are also available from our general collections. If the item you want isn’t in, simply place a hold on it to receive a phone call and/or email when it’s available. Those items get checked out for the standard loan periods.

Your comments are always welcome as we strive to provide you with excellent patron service. If you would like to share your thoughts, please call the Library to speak with the Library’s Director, Mary Schubart, or the Library’s Assistant Director, Lauraine Farr. Thanks!
