Quotes About Libraries

I don’t think it’s anybody’s business what I’m reading in the library.

The Bestseller Club

By joining the Bestseller Club you will be automatically placed on the reserve list for the latest titles by your favorite authors.

 

How to join:

  1. Syosset School District residents fill out the form below or ask for the Bestseller Club Form at Readers' Services on the Second Floor.
  2. Choose up to 40 authors from our list of more than 200 popular writers.

 

Your information (name, telephone number and library card) will be entered into a secure database along with your requested authors. When a new book by one of your selected authors is ordered for the library, you will automatically be placed on reserve for that book. We will then notify you when the book is available for pick up.

 

Please note only fiction titles will be included from the authors listed in the fiction section of the form and non-fiction titles from the non-fiction section.


Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to join the Bestseller Club?
Any Syosset School District resident with an adult card can join the Bestseller Club.

 

How is the order of the reserves determined?
To ensure the equality of all club members, the order of the reserve list rotates. This is to guarantee that no member will consistently have to wait long for a reserve to be filled.

 

What happens to reserves placed before a Bestseller Club reserve?
As our signature club, the Bestseller Club has priority reserve privileges. Any reserves placed by non-members will not be filled until every applicable Bestseller Club member has received a copy.

 

Are there exclusions to the Bestseller Club?
Mass market paperbacks, large print editions and audiobooks are not available for automatic reservation. Fiction titles will be included from the authors listed in the fiction section of the form and non-fiction titles from the non-fiction section. If an author from the fiction section publishes a non-fiction book, or vice versa, it will not be included.

 

Can I request an author who is not on the Bestseller Club form?
Only the authors listed on the form are currently part of the Bestseller Club. The list will be updated periodically as more authors become available. If you would like to recommend an author, please see a Readers' Services librarian.

 

I am already in the Bestseller Club. How can I add or remove authors from my favorites list? How can I check if I'm not sure a certain author is on my list?
To change or review your current selections, please see a Readers' Services librarian. Can't come in person? Librarians are also available by phone at 516-921-7161 ext. 239 and by email. The database is secure and not accessible to all library staff, so please allow 24 hours for your request.
