Last Thursday night I went online to the Sacramento Library website and requested for a book that the local library did not carry. If the other library branches carry the book, one of them will send the book to the library that has someone requesting for it.
Today I received an email notifying me that the book is ready for pick up at the local library. Isn't that great? The book called Falling Leaves by Adeline Mah is the first book that I ever borrowed from the Galt Library. Now that I know that I can make a special request for a book if the local library doesn't carry it, I am more likely to borrow more books in the future.
Yes, I need to broaden my reading list! It has thus far been filled with books on politics and on radical Islam. :-)
