I belong to the Ypsilanti township library, since I live in Superior township but I generally use the Canton library because of its proximity to my house. I don't have a problem with the rule that I cannot put something on the "hold" list since I am not a Canton library member. Usually I just wait out the time till the item eventually becomes available. The sole exception seems to be The Big Bang Theory. As of today, there are 7 holds on Season One disc One. It is, like, impossible to ever get this disc. There is ALWAYS at least one "hold" on it, not to mention most of the other discs as well. I guess I am just voicing my frustration at being able to get this and other Big Bang Theory discs. I don't expect a change of policy but wish there was some way this popular series would be available in a more timely fashion for those of us waiting for the line to end. Thanks.

I am sorry for your frustration. I appreciate your compliments of our library, and you are correct that the Canton Public Library's primary obligation is to our taxpayers in Canton. I have two suggestions that may help ease your frustration:

  1. You have the option of purchasing a Canton Public Library card for $170 per year, which is roughly equivalent to what the average Canton property owner pays annually to support our services. Purchasing a non-resident card provides you with all privileges, including placing holds. Stop by our Checkout Desk and we would be happy to register you.
  2. As a taxpayer supporting the Ypsilanti District Library, you may contact them and request that they purchase this DVD TV series, as you might get it sooner through your home library.
