Selection Process

  • 1st Thursday of the month after the 12th, Kate Sullivan or Jenny Jochimsen will check the WPLC holds list and streamline it for the committee to reflect titles that have the greatest number of WVLS patron holds. She will then email the spreadsheet to committee members.
  • Members are to make their choices by the following Wednesday (18-25th) of the month.
  • The cart will be purchased the following day on Thursday.
