More From the Idea Jar...

To see previous ideas/suggestions click on the link on the right hand side under "More Pages" "Idea Jar Comments and Questions."

38. "Get track books."
You're right, we don't have any books on track and very few on running/cross country or marathon sports in general. I will look into buying some for the collection.

39. "Get soccer books they are asome." We do have several soccer books! Stop by the circulation desk next time you are in and the staff will help you find some.

40. "alot more Arthur movies. more Beranstain Bears books and movies. a room with a couch to relax. More American girl movies." We will continue to purchase more Arthur movies, thanks for asking! We are trying to purchase/replace books in the Berenstain Bear collection. It is difficult to find Berenstain Bear books in hardcover however, so it is a slow process. We do have a comfy couch upstairs in the balcony. If it is ok with your parents you are welcome to take books upstairs to read and look at. There are also comfortable chairs in the Chanler Reading Room at the back of the library. I think we own all of the American Girl movies except Chrissa on DVD. I will order it today! Let me know if we are missing any others.

41. "Some movies that I would like you to buy are, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen and GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra. If you got these that would be great!!! Thank you also for your time and effort. We own both Transformers 2 and GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra, they are shelved with the adult DVD's in the main room. They are very popular so if you don't find them on the shelf just let the staff know and they can place "a hold" and reserve a copy for you. Thank you for your comments!

42. "Nintendo, nintendo, nintendo games." We do have 34 games for the Nintendo Wii. They are located in the YA area next to the catalog computer. There are rarely more than 3 or 4 in the library at a time, however, so if you are waiting for a specific game you'll want to have the library staff place a "hold" on the game for you. We will be ordering several new games later this month.

Keep the ideas coming!
