From the Suggestion Box: More Music CDs

We received this suggestion:

More CDs (music). More diverse music, not only "Michael Bolton" and other not-so-great "classics." Over near the CDs, leave a donation/suggestion box for new CDs.

Music CDs are some of the most-frequently checked out items in the library, along with DVDs. With the high volume of check outs, the item you are looking for may very well be checked out by someone else. Just the other day, a patron checked out 180 CDs at once!

If you don't see what you are looking for while browsing, be sure to look in the catalog for the item. If we don't own it, another library in our catalog consortium might. You can place a hold from the catalog that will bring the CD here for you. It may take a little more time, but it makes maximum use of the resources the library already has.

Suggestions of particular books, CDs, DVDs and other items are always welcome. They can be placed in the suggestion box on the counter near the Check In Desk. At the moment, there is not a good location for a second suggestion box near the CDs, but I will bear it in mind as we shift furniture around upstairs. There may be an opportunity to create a space for it in the future. Donations are also welcome and can be dropped off at the Check In Desk. Please, no copied CDs or DVDS! The library cannot put them into the collection.
