Hot-Off-the-Press Books



 

hot off the press sign   

HOTP are located on "New Books" shelves, next to Information Desk.  HOTP may be borrowed for seven days and must be returned to this Library. HOTP cannot be reserved or renewed.  (However, these titles may be reserved from the larger Library collection through the Library's Reserve ("Hold") system, but may take much longer to obtain.)

Half the subscription to HOTP Books has been a gift from Friends of Encino-Tarzana Library. The other half is from the Central Library's funds.  Information about selection and acquisition of books is at the bottom of this page. Our Librarians notify the Friends when HOTP Books are received and placed on shelves (see list and recent dates below).

About HOTP:

HOTP Books are selected and ordered by the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) before publication dates; selection is based on patron holds, expected popularity, and strong pre-publication reviews.  After publishing, the publishers immediately send HOTP Books to LAPL, where they are quickly processed and delivered to those branch libraries that have subscriptions. They remain on the HOTP shelves as long as there are holds in the system.
