Why would we want to purchase books? Isn't a library for buying books?

Unfortunately, I cannot purchase all the items that are great and wonderful out there that I mention in the blog. We have space and budget restraints. We do, however, purchase most items that are requested by patrons. The comment is intended to let patrons know they can always request a book to be purchased for them by the patron. thanks for the comment.
