What are "Lucky Day" items?

FAQ: What are "Lucky Day" items?

Answer:

Items labeled with the phrase "Lucky Day" in the Library Catalog (V-Cat) are high-demand items that cannot be put on hold and are only made available for immediate checkout at MCPL locations.

What this means is, rather than waiting for the next available copy of a popular item, you might "get lucky" and see it available for immediate checkout on your next visit to your local MCPL. 

(We still have plenty of additional titles to satisfy those on the waiting lists, but Lucky Day items provide an opportunity for instant gratification.)
