Lucky Day Collection

In partnership with Friends of the Joplin Public Library, JPL maintains a Lucky Day Collection!  The Lucky Day Collection is a collection of highly popular books that are available for immediate check-out, even if there are multiple holds on the title in our regular collection.  Titles are first-come, first-served, and available on top of the New Fiction section in the Circulation Lobby.  Patrons may check out up to two titles at a time for two weeks.
