No, we don’t put the books in Styrofoam containers, and no, you can’t have fries with that. But in other respects the Library’s hold system works quite a bit like restaurant carryout. You get in touch with us—in person at the library, by phone, or through your online account—and place an order for items from the “menu,” the library catalog. When each item is ready you’ll be notified by mail or e-mail and you have seven days to pick it up. All you have to do is... waltz in the door and show us your library card. So, how about Chinese ?
