What’s New? Preview and Request New Books

Our librarians carefully select books for the collection from sources like book reviews, library journals, and book-related websites, based on our relationships with our community of readers. The books are added to purchase lists on Amazon and ordered regularly. We have made our purchase lists public so you can request forthcoming books

You can preview the lists on Amazon anytime. If you see a book you would like to request, simply send an email to with your name and the book you would like to read, or call 570-387-8782. We will notify you when your book is ready. It usually takes about one week from the time the book is ordered. In the case of bestsellers which have not yet been published, you will be added to a waiting list for when it comes out, and it may take longer.
