WARREN, NJ - Somerset County Library System of New Jersey announced today that patrons will now be able to find a new collection at all 10 library branches: the Lucky Day Collection. The Lucky Day Collection features bonus copies of the most popular books and DVDs available at SCLSNJ. With no holds list, no option to renew, and shorter checkout times, this collection is meant to make in-demand books and DVDs more available to patrons at the Warren Library and all SCLSNJ branches.
“Our patrons have been asking for certain popular items to be more available and we’re happy to respond to that request with our new Lucky Day collection,” said Lauren Ryan, branch director at SCLSNJ’s North Plainfield Memorial Library branch and the Lucky Day Collection project manager. “Newer items will replace older items every few months, keeping the collection fresh so it is always your lucky day when you stop by the special display.”
Items in the Lucky Day Collection will be marked with a branded four leaf clover sticker and will be on their own special display. Patrons can check out two Lucky Day Collection items at a time; DVDs from this collection are on loan for four days, books are on loan for seven days. The items are not able to be renewed and patrons cannot place a hold on them. “This will ensure that all of the items will continuously circulate and no one will have to wait long to read or view what’s popular right now,” said Ryan.
Patrons can pick up items out of the Lucky Day Collection at any of SCLSNJ’s 10 library branches and return them to any of SCLSNJ’s 10 library branches.
The Lucky Day Collection will initially have a rolling release of many desired books, such as: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, Funny Girl by Nick Hornby, Big Nate Lives It Up by Lincoln Peirce and I Was Here by Gayle Forman and such popular DVDs as Whiplash, Birdman, Big Hero 6, Gone Girl, and Annie.
