The Venice-Abbot Kinney Memorial Branch Library has installed a new system, “Hot Off the Press Books,” for patrons to get the latest bestsellers right off the shelves, according to library branch manager Lucille Cappas.

The library is at 501 Venice Blvd., Venice.

With the new system, patrons of the library can find the bestsellers on special shelves without waiting for months to get them.

Each month the library will receive a shipment of multiple copies of the newest and most popular titles, Cappas said.

The library has “special rules” for borrowing these books to insure that they will be available with no wait. The rules for borrowing:

– seven-day loan period;

– two-book maximum;

– no holds;

– no renewals; and

– books must be returned to the Venice-Abbot Kinney Memorial Branch Library.

Library patrons may still put their name on the waiting list for a particular title.
