We are committed to providing the materials and services that satisfy the educational, informational, recreational, and cultural needs of our diverse community, and strive to encourage a lifelong interest in reading.

Stop in and browse our “Lucky Day” collection! This collection features copies of the most popular, hard-to-get books that cannot be placed on hold. This means that you can wait for your hold on the next Reese Witherspoon bookclub pick to be filled or you can check the Lucky Day cart at any participating branch to see if it’s your Lucky Day! If the book is on the cart, you can check it out for two weeks with no wait. The catch, however, is that these cannot be renewed so if you pick it up, you must be prepared to return it quick. This new collection has shown to make more titiles available to more people, more quickly.

The books in this collection:

  1. may not be placed on hold,
  2. may be checked out for a period of two (2) weeks, and
  3. may not be renewed.

Be aware that this is only available at the following branches:

  • Ewing
  • Hickory Corner
  • Hightstown
  • Hopewell
  • Lawrence
  • Robbinsville
  • Twin Rivers

After finding a “Lucky Day” book that you have a hold on, please make sure to remove the hold from your account.
