What’s new at the library this week

Did you know that between July 2008 to March 2009, over 105,000 titles were checked out of the Southborough library? Or that on average, 1,500 people use the library each week? Not bad.

And did you also know that the library gets new titles in all the time? I though it would be interesting to publish a list of what’s new at the library each week. Get your library cards ready, because here’s your first installment.

(Thanks to Library Director Jane Cain, Children’s Librarian Miss Kim, and the rest of the library staff for supplying the list!)
