What We're Reading: Behind the Scenes with TE

If you haven't yet noticed, we have a special What We're Reading section for you this month, brought to you by our very talented TE staff members. "TE?” You ask. “What branch is this?” Our Technical Operations department, located in the Chantilly Regional Library building, does all of the behind-the-scenes work to get Fairfax County Public Library’s books on branch shelves.

Fairfax County Public Library has nearly 500,000 registered cardholders with a variety of interests and needs. Yet this small department does all the ordering, cataloging, labeling, packaging, interlibrary loans and shipping work for all 23 of our branches. They order, catalog and process all formats of materials: printed books, books on CD, eBooks, eAudiobooks, Large Print books and coordinate all of the databases available through the Library. From online SAT study guides to the latest best-seller, from children's boardbooks to the latest Folger edition of Shakespeare, they do it all. Thousands of new books pass through their the Tech Ops office each year. So who better to ask for popular book recommendations? These are the titles that have currently caught their attention.
