WTPL's Best Sellers Club
Plan ahead! You don't need to rush to reserve your copy of a newly released book by your favorite fiction author. (Even if you know about this library service, please read on.) ...
Join our Best Sellers Club, which is designed to make your life easier. You tell us which authors on our list you like to read, and we do the rest. You may select up to ten authors from a list of over 250 popular fiction authors. Print out this form or pick one up at the library, select your authors, and drop the form off at the Circulation Desk. We’ll automatically place a hold for you on each new book released by the authors you select. When the books are available for you to pick up, you'll be notified by phone (the default method), email or text message.
Already a member of the Best Sellers Club? We've updated the list of authors, adding many more. If you would like to change your selected authors, let us know by filling out this form with your 10 choices and hand it in. These 10 authors will replace those you previously chose.
The Best Sellers Club is a free service available to anyone with a Washington Township Public Library card.
