New! 7-day Loan Books

Tired of long waiting lists for popular books? New Canaan Library now has a new browsing collection of high-demand books on the 7-day Loan Shelf, where there are no waiting lists. The book is yours for a one-week checkout, with no renewals and no holds. Two 7-day loan books at a time, please. 

What books are in the 7-day loan collection?  A selection of about 50 fiction and nonfiction New York Times best sellers, recent and upcoming authors on stage titles, high-demand book group titles, and titles of local interest. New titles are added every week. 

Where are the 7-day loan books?  Across from the circulation desk, next to the new DVDs and new audiobooks.

You can still place holds on books in the regular circulating collection, but not on 7-day loan books.  They are available strictly on a first come, first served basis.  Questions?  Please phone the Information Desk at 203-594-5003.
