I love my library.....
Regular visitors will know that I love my libraries, but I found out something on my last visit which has got me thinking. It turns out that my main library doesn't really like romance. Yes they have romance novels but, as I overheard last night, they do not BUY any. Whatever ones they do get is only because someone has donated them. Explains why there are some pretty big gaps in their collection, like some Kleypas books and the like.
I wonder how many other genres are the same as this?
In other news, my tendency to put lots of books on request is beginning to cause problems. I just picked up five books last night, and now another two have come in, and I am reserve no. 1 on another three or four. This could all go horribly wrong!!
