Doc’s Corner

All books on the shelves have been donated to Golden Palms for permanent residents to read and enjoy. Since it was called Palm Suited Library (circa 1988) fiction has been removed or not been put on a shelf if the publication date is ten or more years old. Duplicate titles have not been shelved; however duplicate titles by an author are shelved in paperback, hard copy small print and hard copy large print. Fiction is located in the main room and in then room to the right.

There are books to be processed and put on the shelves. I do not have time now because I am trying to keep titles by an author properly alphabetized. It is not unusual to find that all books by an author have had the order changed. It is equally not unusual to find a title by Margaret Truman, for example, relocate to titles by Baldacci. I have no idea why some resident or residents think proper replacement and alphabetization are not important. If you remove a book from a shelf and find that you do not want it, please put it in the book return box, and I will reshelf it.

I try to keep the library clean, organized and usable. Care and respect for other users is appreciated.
