Last time this happened Galileo was alive.

Please consider adding "Cong Catchers" at your library. It's about my memories of being a sentry dog handler in Viet Nam. ISBN-10: 1635259827 Amazon, Barnes & Noble. Thanks, Lee
Thank you, Michelson Library staff. We have loved our time with you and enjoyed all of your inventive and enjoyable programming. I found Cook the Book right when we got here, so I am going to miss it so much. And your Harry Potter book night is bananas. You all are fantastic, creative people. I will miss visiting you and hope I can find a library staff that will come close to being as awesome as you guys.
Shout out to the library for answering my question and explaining how the process works. Very prompt. WTG
I wanted a book on Saturday that was available online but when we got to the library the lady said the book was not processed yet so it was not available and she wrote my name and number down and said it would be logged in and available before Wednesday. So far it has not become available so is there any way to check how long it will be and why the internet catalog said it was already available? Thank you
