Library Requests

I have just tried something really cool! I requested books and DVDs online, to pick up at my library! How cool it that?

So you know what that means? It means that I do not have to take the time to look for the books that are on my book list, and then spend time with the librarian while she/he is placing requests for me at other libraries for the books that they do not have. Now, don't get me wrong...I enjoy spending time at the library and talking with our librarians, but I don't like trying to find things/standing around while my toddler is still in "take every book off of the shelf" mode...he is getting better, but still enjoys being a "house wrecker".

Have you ever done this before? If not, maybe you want to try it out too! Just look up your library system online and then go to the request page! Easy Peasy! (ok, I never say that, but it was fun to write!)

So, that is something that I did tonight...what have you been up to?

Mmmm, tonite I made apple cinnamon bread for breakfast (from a box, gasp!). I folded laundry. I cut coupons. I rocked my baby to sleep. And I'm still trying to read all the blogs I've been holding in my Reader since my vacation started last week. Sigh. It ends today. Sigh.

:) I do it all the time because, well, you know Bubba...

Last night we had the Literary Gourmet over to look at pictures of China. She is so cute!

The feature I use the most is the renewal feature. I rarely get those videos back in time so I just go on and renew them. Unfortunatly for me, you can only renew once, but at least it gives me another week to get them back.

I also have my library email 2 days before my books and videos are due.

Now I'm going to go renew some videos that are do today. Thanks for the reminder.
