Fun Finds on the Holds Shelf

We like to think we know the library pretty well, but with more than 61,000 items in our collection – and more than 9 million across the IHLS system as a whole – we’re always seeing something fun or unexpected popping up on the holds shelf. Here are a couple of the coolest finds we’ve come across this month: 

Miniature Books: 4,000 Years of Tiny Treasures, by Anne Bromer (a giant book about tiny books — what’s not to love?!)

Birds, by Tim Flach (a compendium of GORGEOUS, striking, stunning, breathtaking photos of birds of the world)

Kat Kong, by Dav Pilkey (it’s a “massive meowing menace”! It’s a sweet cuddly kitten! It’s… Kat Kong!)

The Case of The Unsolved Case, by Alexander Steele (winner of the first inaugural “Best Mystery Title” award)

Mastering the Rubik’s Cube, by Donald E. Taylor (it’s only 30 pages long, how hard could it possibly be?)

Looking for your next read? These items (and millions more) are available here at the O’Fallon Public Library, or through Interlibrary Loan. Check one out on your online account, via our new SHARE app, or by asking one of your friendly local librarians!
