(Farmington-AP) -- More than one thousand Davis County Library patrons have put their names on the waiting list to check out "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," scheduled for release in July.

Library director Pete Giacoma said this is the first time in his 22 years with the county library system that a book has had that type of demand.

He said the number two waiting-list favorite may have been the previous J.K. Rowling previous book, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," with a hold list of 400 to 500.

Giacoma said Davis County has ordered 250 copies of the book.
