Wow. Today I received an e-mail from the San Francisco Public Library with the following information:
“The material(s) you have requested are now at the library shown below (next to “Pickup At”) and will be held for you until the date indicated.”
The book listed was one I requested four months before we even moved. I assumed the request had been accidentally deleted or otherwise expired. But here we are, almost a year into life in LA, and the book I requested has become available in San Francisco! I’d always loved the SF public library, but now a bit less.
