You've just heard that Faye Kellerman has a new book out, but you don't have the time to get to the library to put a hold on the book. Now you won't have to worry--we'll do it for you! If you are a North Bellmore Library cardholder, join the Bestsellers Club and you will automatically be placed on the hold list for any 5 of the popular authors you choose. While we can't guarantee how near the top of the list you will be, it's one less thing you'll have to do. Tell us those authors whose new books you want to read. We'll add your name to the waiting list and contact you when the book is ready to check out. Pick up is at the North Bellmore Library only.
