Teen Bestsellers and a Nerdfighter Documentary

The two things I am ridiculously, nerdily excited about these days:

If you’re like me, you know the release dates for all the new books you want to read.  I obsessively search the Library’s online catalog to see if the books, like Requiem by Lauren Oliver, are listed so I can place a hold on them.  Sometimes a book is so popular that it seems like it will never become available.  It feels like you’ll be waiting forever to get your hands on it.  I’m looking at you The Perks of Being a Wallflower

We want you to be able to find some of the newest, most popular books every time you walk into the Library.  Because of this, we have created a Teen Bestsellers collection at the Main Library in Oakland.    There are mutliple copies of each of these titles (and they’re non-requestable), so you’ll always find something new, unexpected, intriguing, or coveted when you browse the Teen Bestseller shelves!  Here is a small sample of what’s available in this new collection:

  InsurgentBomb: The Race to Build

If you’re still waiting to read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, now is your chance to snag it!   Get ready for the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s August screening of A Film to Decrease Worldsuck: The Nerdfighters Documentary!  The date and time will be revealed very soon.
