Browsing Collection

The LSB Bestseller Browsing Collection that is funded and maintained by the LSB Friends is unique!  The collection was created in response to very few new materials being sent to us due to system wide cuts in the books and materials budget. Many of our patrons visit our branch without a specific title in mind and just want to browse to find something to read.  With recently published items being purchased and donated, we have been able to provide patrons with new nonfiction and fiction titles as well as DVDs.  The collection has been very popular since its inception with more than 50%  of the titles in circulation at any one time. Stop by the branch and see what's new on the shelf!
