New Books


Our book buyers are always busy looking out for the best new releases to add to our shelves. As well as stocking many of the top best sellers we also respond to library users’ requests. If there is a book you would like us to buy please either make a note in the Blue Suggestions Book in the library or contact us. Our decision will be based on our budget and the level of interest in the book. 

We produce quarterly lists of recent purchases for both adult fiction and non-fiction. Occasional lists are also made for large print and audiobooks
