Reserving a cd on line

I'm trying to request the All Time Greatest Hits CD by Barry White on line. It's available, yet I get a "not available for request" response.

Completing Summer Reading Logs

I recently e-mailed regarding suggestions for a program to come to in order to complete the summer reading log. Everything is either over or full. Suggestions? My previous e-mail neglected to state that my girls are in the read-to-me program and are 5 years old.

Online Access: Music Collection

Why not allow online access to the entire music collection? Benefits:

  1. It would be a more efficient way for patrons to search and use the entire catalog. Multiple Patrons could access the same material at once. Easier to place music on a MP3 player
  2. It would reduce damage, scratches, lost material, etc
  3. Other Libraries could share their collections (interlibrary loan) - increasing the size of both collections at a minimal cost

As a service project the Cubscouts/Boyscouts could use the computer room to move all of the CDs to a digital repository. (Many hands make light heavy work)

Grey's Anatomy-DVD

I've been watching the Grey's Anatomy series and now I'm up to Grey's anatomy. Season three, Disc 3 [videodisc] : seriously extended / Touchstone Television and now I can't seem to get a hold of it. I'm on the hold list, but because the last person never returned it and is being billed for it no one else can watch it. I've tried to get it from another library and can't. I've made a suggestion on the CPL site to try to get it, and have heard nothing, so I was wondering if you could help me get it so how? Please respond Thank You In Advance
