For new books, the regular print hardback is released first. Large print & other formats are often released at a later date (see FantansticFiction.com for more info on everything from adult to juvenile fiction). Please keep in mind, due to COVID temporarily closing publishers and printers, there are additional delays now with books arriving and some publication dates have been pushed back. Also, it takes at least a few weeks for purchase and cataloging (items will be listed as "in process" until they have arrived to the branch from Regional HQ, finished their 3-day quarantine, and been processed for the shelf). Holds cannot be placed until the item is cataloged in an NWRL library, and there is a 6-month protection preventing holds on any item outside of NWRL until those 6 months pass.
