I just went online and ordered all our books for the week!

I spent so much time at this library yesterday looking for four books and only found 1! 

Now i can go pick them up in just a couple days. 

I'm so doing this from now on! 

It will make our library trips so much easier and enjoyable! 


Do you guys order/hold your books online?

I dothis ALL THE TIME! Particularly because usually when I am at the library I have 2 under 18 months with me who like to pull all the paper books off the shelves!

We also pick out a few books while we are there........

 Cool. Wonder if our library does this. Would be good if you knew what your looking for ahead of time. Sometimes I don't, but it would make library trips less aggravating!

I actually e-mail our librarians for books that we're looking for (specific or general) and they pull a collection for me.  I actually went yesterday to pick up a collection of solar system books/dvds/mags and also a collection of materials on magnets.  If they don't have what I'm looking for, they will order through interlibrary loan or purchase a book.  Our library and librarians seriously rock.

Ooh that's a good idea. I usually end up grabbing books from the teen section for me because my 2 toddlers are too rambunctious to take to the adult side of the library.

Oh yes, I always a whole list on hold. Books for me, for the kids, and movies too.

Yes, it saves time especially with a toddler.

I live in Maine so most of the card catalogs for Maine libraries are linked together. If my library doesn't have what I am looking for I can do an online request from another library and they send it to mine.
