Happy 2016!  And despite decades of predictions that public libraries were
wheezing their last breath, I am happy to be among those who defy common
knowledge on a daily basis.

 

And welcome to the first high demand hold digest of 2016.  This month, I
reduced the list for physical books from 20 to 10.  This was due to the fact
that among the top 45 books with the most holds, 35 were pre-publication
records for unreleased books.  I hope that books don't take it personally.
