A look at what's happening at Willard

Join the Favorite Authors Club Junior or Young Adult

A couple of months ago, one of my favorite authors came out with a new book, and I really wanted to read it. Because I was not a part of Willard's Adult Favorite Authors Club, I was placed at the bottom of the holds list of 200 library guests.

I was heartbroken. It took nearly a month for me to check out this highly coveted title. During my wait, I started to wonder if children and young adults felt the same way.

How devastating would it be to know your favorite author released a new book, all the available copies were already checked out, and the holds list is a mile long.

Fortunately, children and young adults can now get first dibs on books by their favorite authors through a new Willard program, Favorite Authors Club Junior and Young Adult.

Younger patrons can fill out a short form (at the library or on-line) to indicate their favorite authors and series. Once the form is processed, those guests will have first access to books without having to place a hold on it. Willard Library does all the work for you!

Do you like Dav Pilkey, Jeff Kinney, or Angie Thomas? Is "Big Nate" or "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" your favorite series? Well, I recommend you join the Favorite Authors Club Junior or Young Adult.

Happy reading!

Tynisha is currently reading With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo.
