I am wondering how long it takes to buy additional copies of a book?
This particular book, "THE CONFESSION" by John Grisham has had at least 53 holds on it since before JUNE of this year and has had the comment that
"13 copies ordered for Adult Fiction on 06-11-2010"
And there has been ONLY ONE BOOK AVAILABLE this entire time.
Also - do I get a response to my comment sent to my e-mail adderess as well as here?
Also - what does the term
"3 holds on first copy returned of 1 copy" mean??
Thank you for your earliest response.
"The librarians also keep an eye on which items have the most holds, and will buy additional copies when the number of holds"

There is a computer maintenance class that is scheduled to meet on Thursday, October 14 from 9:30am-11:30am. When I attempted to register for the class, it now indicates that the class will meet on Friday, October 22. Which is the correct date? I certainly hope that the original date of Thursday the 14th is correct since I intentionally rearranged my work schedule in order to take this class.
I am enrolled in MS Word I on 10/5 and MS Word II on 10/12. I have a schedule conflict for both of these courses and won't be able to attend. Please remove me from both of these courses so someone else can use the spot. Thank you.
