Library System Introduces Amazon Wish List to Help Fill Collection Gaps

             As a result of budget reductions, the Martin County Library System is unable to provide either the variety or quantity of copies of high interest titles required to fulfill patron demand.  The many donations of gently used titles that the library system receives are insufficient to fill all of its collection needs.

             With support from the Library Foundation of Martin County, an Amazon “Wish List” has been established to help reduce collection shortfalls.  The list will contain titles selected by Collection Development Coordinators in concurrence with the Library’s Collection Development Policy.  The Wish List contains titles in a variety of formats including but not limited to printed books, audio books, DVDs and music.                

             For more information about the Amazon Wish List or to learn more about the Martin County Library System, call 772/221-1403, pick up a Library Connection at any Martin County library or visit www.library.martin.fl.us.
