[minervacirc] High Demand Hold Digest - Blind Groundhog Edition

January’s end.  Many things have changed in the world in the last month, but
we are all still here.  So let’s celebrate by peering into the collective
consciousness of our beloved patrons and find out what they want from their
local library!

 

One note – be wary of The Girl on the Train.  Apart from the Paula Hawkins
adapted, Emily Blunt starring blockbuster motion picture, there is suddenly
a groundswell of desire for the 2009 Catherine Deneuve French feature film
of the same name, plus a tremendous interest in the 2014 documentary also
sharing the same title.  Guess there really is something universal about
girls on trains.  So check your records when ordering things for your
patrons - some people out there may be waiting for six months for the wrong
title.

 

And remember – love is the only truth, everything else is illusion.

 

Cheers, be well, and see you soon,

 

Josh
