I have ordered a book from the MelCat system I was wondering how I will be contacted when the book arrives at the Canton Library? right now the status says 'requested' will that change when the book arrives? thank you.

Thanks for contacting us. The status of your book has now changed to In Transit. That means the loaning library has pulled the requested item from their shelves and checked it out in their system. They will then prepare and send it out in delivery within the next few days. When the book arrives here, the staff will scan it and the status will change to MeL Received and it will go on the Interloan hold shelf behind the checkout desk. The next day (if you don't pick it up on the day it arrives), there will be a hold notice sent out. Since we have your email address on file, you will be notified that way. Please remember that with the holiday weekend coming up, it may add a few days to the travel time for your request.
