Let's Get Reading! at Wilson and Holds Pickup for Physical Books
Let's Get Reading! features 2-3 books on a theme that can be picked up. It is a great option if you are not sure what you want to read. If you want something more specific, you can fill out the "I don't know what book I want to read" form. We will do our best to choose a few books we think you would enjoy. If you want a specific title, you can put a hold on it and pick it up. Here a short video demonstration how to place a hold.
