RENTAL BOOKS or, “What is everyone reading now?”

What?  The Middletown Public Library has a rental collection of BEST SELLERS to enhance the regular collection.  The rental book collection provides library users with an option for obtaining popular fiction and non-fiction titles.  Some titles are so popular that a lot of people reserve them.  If you do not wish to put a book on reserve and wait….the RENTAL BOOKS are for you!

Why?  Many libraries have added a non-reserve rental collection to add to the choices available for customers.  The serendipity of finding a best seller on the shelf instead of waiting for weeks or months appeals to some people. 

How?  Find a book on the rental book cart, and rent it for $2 per week.  Pay the rental fee when you borrow the book.  Rental Books are available on a first come, first served basis.  They cannot be reserved.  The Library will continue to purchase free copies that may be place on reserve (HOLD)

Where?  The collection is located on a book kiosk directly across from the Circulation Desk.

Questions?  Our staff is always available to help!
