Our Collection

New Books - August 2020

Archived Lists

Our recent monthly new books lists have compiled titles selected for the collection while the Library and much of the rest of the world was shut down for COVID-19. As the world has slowly reopened, our distributors have begun shipping orders and Library staff has resumed processing new arrivals. Below is a list of books received and cataloged over the last month. There are many more to come.

Below that, you will find another list highlighting recent orders from the last month or so. These books have not yet arrived, but will soon, and are available for your holds lists now.

All told, there are about 500 books listed below, and we hope something for every taste, interest, or mood. Happy reading.
