My town has an extensive network of neighborhood libraries. However, each library branch is kind of on the small side, and book selection is sometimes limited. So, once I exhausted my local branch, I haven’t really been back to the library since.
Well, lo and behold, they now have an online system in which I can search all the books at all the libraries, then have my selections put on hold and transferred to my local branch. I guess they’ve had this for a while, but now with the automated system, I can put 20 books on hold in less than five minutes, all from my iPhone.
Needless to say, I have been to the library no less than six times in the past two weeks.
I bet the Book-Mobile people hate me right about now.
