We all know the plot by now.
Even so, copies of the Mueller report remain in high demand for Kitsap County readers.
Officially called the “Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election,” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 Election — and obstruction of justice by President Trump — was released in April.
Kitsap Regional Library ordered multiple print copies of the two-volume, 488-page report, and had a waiting list for the book before it even arrived.
Interest has not waned since, however.
Micah Wulfers, collection and technical services manager for Kitsap Regional Library, said nine copies of the Mueller report have been circulated to 38 library patrons since May.
“It appears that demand for the title is remaining constant,” Wulfers added. “There are 27 active requests for the title, and approximately half of the requests were placed in June and the other half throughout July.”
Other library systems in the Puget Sound region are also working through a backlog of requests for the book.
Seattle Public Library had 45 copies of the report, with 94 readers still on wait lists. Three audio versions of the report also have wait lists.
And in the King County Library System, 69 print editions of the book are in circulation, with 82 people on wait lists. The system’s ebook version is also in high demand; though there are 76 copies, there were 75 readers on a wait list this week.
For Kitsap readers interested in a different historical take on Trump, there’s this: Kitsap Regional Library has three copies of “Trump’s Enemies: How the Deep State is Undermining the Presidency.”
Written by former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and deputy campaign manager David Bossie, the book is described on Amazon.com thusly: “The assault on the 45th president began immediately following Donald J. Trump’s victory in the 2016 Presidential Election. It was then that Democrats concocted the absurd story of Russian spies and international plots as an excuse for Hillary’s humiliating defeat.”
Also, there’s no wait list. Two of three copies of the book were available for checkout from Kitsap Regional Library earlier this week.
