In partnership with Friends of the Joplin Public Library, JPL recently launched our 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.
How do we determine what gets added to the Lucky Day Collection? We run regular reports to identify books that have waiting lists—then we buy extra copies (whether for Lucky Day or the regular collection). The collection launched with 24 titles and is now up to 26, with a total of 72 books being circulated. Patrons have been very excited about the new collection, so come in today to see if it’s your “Lucky Day”!
