Automatically Yours

The Coffeyville Public Library is starting a new service called Automatically Yours. Tell us which fiction authors whose new books you want to read and we’ll automatically put you on reserve for each new book from those authors. We will then let you know when it’s ready to check out. No more having to be alert to when a new book is published or if you’ve reserved it yet or not.

You can add or drop authors from your automatic reserve list at any time by asking at the desk.

We have a list of 105 authors that we will reserve for you. Some of the authors are David Baldacci, Dan Brown, Janet Evanovich, W.E.B. Griffin, Dean Koontz, Karen Kingsbury, Terry Goodkind, James Patterson and Danielle Steel.

You can pick up the Automatically Yours form at the desk in the library
