{#sol15} Hooray for Library Hold Shelves 6/31

hosted by Two Writing Teachers

Some of my favorite emails come from my public library. They say things like, "The following items are ready to be picked up at your library...." The beauty of the system is my ability to visit the online catalog and order up to fifteen items. It has only been in the past ten years that this magic has been available. I have so much love for this system. I could only love it more if they would let me order more items.

On top of that, if the items aren't available in our library system, I can go to the Interlibrary Loan catalog and order it there. Things like this used to be so much more complicated and would take a long time.

After opening my email, I zipped over to the library. Now I have some awesome books and DVDs. Here's what I may be watching and reading in the coming week:

Hooray for library hold shelves & online catalogs!


  1. I agree! I get e-mails letting me know that e-books are ready and I love it so much ! I can read on my phone, which has helped me read so many more books that I would otherwise get to in my busy life. Hooray for libraries in general!

  2. I couldn't agree more! Its always fun when I know that I can get a book, especially when I have a library so close!

  3. Library systems are great! Ours has what they call the best sellers list. Any time one of the authors you select releases a new book, you are automatically put on the hold list. How cool is that?

  4. Look at all of those goodies just waiting for you!!! Awesome!!!!!

  5. You've got a lot to keep you busy this weekend!
