The mission of the Brownsburg Public Library is to offer lifelong learning for the community and patrons of the Library.

 

 

Welcome to the Bestsellers Club!

 

Pick your favorite authors and when a new hardback fiction title is ordered, we'll automatically put your name on the list to read the book!

 


It's that easy!


There are a few club guidelines to follow:

  • Limit 15 authors per person
  • Position on the holds list will be determined randomly with each release
  • Bestsellers Club members will be placed on hold for a title as soon as we order it
  • If you'd like to make changes to your selections, please notify our Information Services Team.

Frequently Asked Questions:


1) How will I know if I'm on hold for my authors?
Check your account online. When a new title is ordered you will see your hold there. You may also check with a staff member to verify your hold has been placed.


2) Why am I not the first on the list for my author's latest release?
Each month all club members who've selected a particular author are randomly placed on hold by our system. So, you'll be in a different spot each time. The good news? Bestseller's Club members are placed in the holds queue first (before non-club members).


3) What ratio will you use to determine how many copies to buy per hold?
We currently use a 3:1 ratio. For every 3 people on hold for a title, we buy one book with a maximum of 10 copies in the Library of a particular title.


4) What about adding different authors?
We welcome suggestions and will certainly consider them. Please email your suggestions to Information Services.

 

5)Can I delay my membership for travel?
If you have to leave the Bestsellers Club during while traveling for extended periods of time, let us know by stopping by the Ask Us desk, emailing us, or calling us. We're happy to make special arrangements.
