“The Drive” At The VPL

I was researching at the library today and decided to ask why, two months after they bought copies of “The Drive“, it is still not available on the shelves.  It has made it to the catalog but all copies are listed as  “unavailable”.

It was explained to me that budget cuts have hit the library hard, and the reduced number of acquisitions staff are months behind.  Apparently they have an immense line of books to get through, falling behind all the time.

I know this isn’t as important as losing women’s’ shelters or schools closing, but really — what’s the point of buying books if they can’t be read?
