I suggested a new book by John Grisham titled:
Theodore Boone:The Abduction (Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer) [Hardcover]
that will be released on June 6, 2011 and it says that I will be notified about the status of it and/or be added to the list if this book is in the libraries inventory, etc.
I have not heard anything. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? I have tried doing this before with other books.
The newly-created library board's announcement that they will open the Romulus Public Library for eight hours, one day per week, through the first week of July, and their plan to fund the library at .12 mills after that for service three days per week, is a great start to getting the new independent library started.
However, with these hours, staffing levels, and funding levels, the Romulus Public Library will not meet the minimum requirements for state certification. As a result, the Canton Public Library will continue to enforce the April resolution by the CPL Board of Trustees not to honor Romulus Public Library cards, until the Romulus Public Library meets minimum requirements — among them, to be open at least 40 hours per week (assuming Class 4 public library status); to employ a full-time library director holding an ALA-accredited master's degree and who is certified by the Library of Michigan; and to establish local funding at a minimum of .3 mills.
Until that day, while Romulus cardholders may enter our library and use our services and materials in the building, you will not be able to checkout our materials or register for our programs. As always, non-resident cards may be purchased to receive full services at the Canton Public Library only, at a cost equivalent to what the average Canton property owner pays in annual taxes to support Canton library services. That rate is currently $170 per year.
The Romulus Public Library Board of Trustees has already made great strides in continuing public library service to their residents, and I am confident that they will soon be able to meet minimum standards. At that time, the CPL Board of Trustees will revisit the issue of reinstating reciprocal borrowing with Romulus.

First Place"It had taken me 10 months of the most grueling investigating that I have ever done in my career, but I finally solved what may be the most difficult mystery of my life: Why she always brushed her tongue until the toothbrush made her gag."
Second Place"Several ladies had decided to hold a rap fest at their dorm, sort of an old-fashioned ho' down."
Third Place"When the smoke cleared, there sat the magical orange gerbil, and his toothpick army."
Thank you to everyone who participated in the celebration of National Library Week with the Canton Public Library.
If you look at this picture of me, you can see I'm not at CPL! The CTTS Staff and I went on a little field trip yesterday. We visited the Novi Public Library! The Novi Library built a brand new building last year and we went to look around. It's a pretty cool place. They even have a race car in the Children's Department called the Novi Special! And there are beautiful tiles to look at too. One even has a dinosaur bone in it. And just like at CPL, there a lots of fun computers to play on and interesting books to check out.
Did you know that Canton Public Library has "reciprocal borrowing privileges" with Novi Library? Those big words mean that CPL is friends with Novi Library, and that your Canton Public Library card works all the way over there! I think that's the coolest thing I learned on my tour. You should go "check out" the Novi Library (just a little library humor there!) but don't forget to come visit me too!
