What are skip-the-line books?
Skip-the-line books are special copies of titles set aside by your library. They have a few rules for how they circulate:
- Skip-the-line copies don't have wait lists
- Skip-the-line copies can't be renewed
- Your library may have shorter loan periods for them
- Your library may limit the number you can borrow at a time
This is a great way for a library to lend select copies of popular books quickly and delight more patrons.
Skip-the-line copies are marked with shamrock icon. You may see them in lists your library creates, in search results, or when browsing.
You can find skip-the-line books in your library's catalog under Library > Explore > Skip The Line. You'll only ever see skip-the-line books that are currently available to borrow, so be sure to check back often.
