What do you mean you don't have The City of Bones?

Oh No!!
The book you wanted isn't checked in!

"wut u meen u not haz book i wants?"
You know that One Book? That super-hyped book all your friends told you is awesome, the one Hollywood is making a movie about, the one that's all over the news, the one you absolutely can't wait to get your hands on and read for yourself? Yeah, that one. Well, there's nothing more frustrating than coming to the library, expecting to walk away with that One Special Book, and discovering it's not only checked out, but there's also a months-long waiting list for it. (At least there's nothing more frustrating in the library world). 

Oh No! What do you read now?

True that we at the Oxford Public Library Teen Department try to stay on top of what's currently popular. Whether it's The Mortal Instruments series, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, or anything by John Green. But, unfortunately, we cannot have unlimited supplies of these titles. However, we do sympathize with the above situation and try to make sure no one leaves our building unsatisfied--even if they don't get the exact book they came to get. Therefore, we've set up a display of great books for you to read while you wait for that One Book to come in. You'll find it above the curved fiction shelf (just look for the sign featuring the begging kitty cat). 

Still don't see what you want? Ask the librarian on desk for recommendations.
