The addition of seven new authors to the Automatic Advance Reserve (AAR) program at the McPherson Public Library will give patrons even more options for the first take of popular books.
Through the AAR program, readers can sign up and choose their favorite authors. Every time that author publishes a new book, library staff will contact patrons and have the book ready for pick up when an available copy is ready. The patron will then have three days to pick up the book.
The program has been very popular, with almost 300 authors to choose from, and spanning a variety of genres. Participants have the freedom to change author preferences at any time. The library receives several copies of the most in-demand books to keep wait time to a minimum.
Authors new to the list include: Ta-Nehisi Coates, Jenny Colgan, Allen Eskens, Pam Jenoff, Martha Hall Kelly, Susan Elia MacNeal, and J. Ryan Stradal.
To sign up for AAR, stop by the library and ask for a form, which will include a complete list of available authors, or visit our AAR page.
