Bigger, better, cheaper!

New Releases Collection Gets a Makeover​


You can’t get enough of a good thing and it seems Rotorua Library users can’t get enough of our New Releases Collection.  So we are making the New Releases Collection bigger, better and cheaper!

“Customers have been telling us they like to be able to walk in and find the latest books all in the same place and we are sure that reducing the price won’t disappoint anyone” says Library Director, Jane Gilbert.

As the name suggests, the New Releases Collection holds newly released books, DVDs and magazines. Up until now, this has been a small collection with a $5 rental fee per item. Despite its size, the New Releases Collection has been one of the busiest in the library and it was decided it needed to grow.

The size of the New Releases Collection will grow making it much easier for users to come in and find new, popular books to borrow.

Previously, users could not place holds on books in the New Releases Collection. To ensure users don’t miss out when an item is checked out, the library has improved this process and holds on this collection will now be possible.

And of course the best news is it’s getting cheaper. The rental fee for the New Releases Collection has reduced from $5 to $3 for 10 days rental. Borrowers can take almost twice as many items for the same price.

Fans of our Free Adult Fiction Collection can rest assured as items in this collection are still borrowable at no charge.

Some examples of titles in the enhanced New Releases Collection are Night school by Lee Child, Small great things by Jodi Picoult, Private Paris by James Patterson, Bay of Sighs by Nora Roberts and the DVD Me before you based on the novel by Jojo Moyes.

Keep an eye out for new titles each week.
