#231: Interlibrary Loans
One of the reasons libraries are my favorite American institution is because of interlibrary loans. Despite loving my town library, it's collection is not the best. Therein lies the greatness of interlibrary loans! There's a book I wanted to read that my library didn't have; I requested it through the internet last week, and today I received a phone call that it was waiting at my local branch for me...and I didn't even need to go anywhere to pick it up. Like magic!
