Greetings, sweltering salutations, and welcome back to another page-turning,
twist-ending, intellectually fulfilling edition of the High Demand Hold
digest.

 

Just want to send out words of congratulations to those Libraries that use a
July to June fiscal year because, despite the years on the calendar quickly
spinning forward and popular culture predicting the death of Libraries for
at least the last quarter century, we are all still here and have lived to
fight another day.  And to pull a quote from Dr. Who, "You want weapons?
We're in a library.  Books are the best weapon in the world.  This room is
the greatest arsenal we could have.  Arm yourself!"

 

And a note on the notations.  Items marked with a * appeared on last month's
list.  The number in parenthesis indicates the change in the total number of
holds on the item - so in the case of "The President is Missing", it did
appear on June's list, and between then and now an additional 160 people
requested it.  

 

So cheers, thanks, remember that heat waves are temporary yet winter seems
to last forever, and I'll see you in the stacks.

 

Josh
