High-Demand book questions


I haven't seen any guidance on the site on what it means for a book to show '21 day non-requestable'.  Could you explain what this book status means?

As a separate question, if a book is in high-demand across the library system, and I request the book, how do you decide who receives it?




I asked to reserve Dan Brown's "Inferno."  I was advised I'll be 400+ on the reserve list.  As a library member who has been donating for many years, I wonder why more copies aren't available in English?  When there's such an overwhelming interest in this book, I feel English should receive priority over the purchase of non-English copies.
