inter-library loans

Our local library is very small. In fact the 3 closest libraries are all quite tiny compared to what I have been used to. BUT, what they do have is an on-line ordering system, where you can search the card catalogs from all the libraries in the Mid-Hudson system, order what you like and have it sent to your local branch where you can pick it up at your own convenience. How great is that?

I have just spent some time ordering lots and lots of lovely books and books on tape as well as saving others for a later date. Free books. What could be better?????

Our library has this too and it's really wonderful. They have everyting...books, videos, CD's. Oh for more time to read/watch/listen to all the interesting things out there!
My hubby and I love the library! I even volunteered there for a while before I started to sub at school.
