Why Express?

Bestseller Express books are the newest, hottest books on our shelves. Just look for the rainbow Bestsellers Express sign to see what's in! 

It's called an "express" collection because the books are due back in 7 days instead of the regular three weeks - you can't renew items from this shelf and you can't place holds on them, either!

Bestsellers Express FAQs

Can I still place a hold on bestselling titles?

Yes! Sometimes a title may be in both the regular circulating collection and the Bestsellers Express collection.

Holds are filled using books in the regular collection, while Bestsellers Express copies remain on the shelf for anyone lucky enough to spot them - it's always worthwhile to come in and take a look at the Bestsellers Express shelves if you're languishing at the end of a long holds line!

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.

  • Limit: 2 Bestseller Express books
  • 7 day loan
