Oh, Pikes Peak Library District,
dear Pikes Peak Library District.
Your kindness is incredible,
your patience is …
Well, okay. I’m not so good with poetry, so I’ll put an end to my terrible ode and just tell you why I love the library, specifically the one here in Colorado Springs.
So I’ve been waiting … not patiently at all … to read a YA that came out last year. I’ve put it on my Paperback Swap wishlist, but to no avail. So I finally looked it up in my libraries online catalog. But they didn’t have it.
I was lamenting this fact to Katie the other day, and she suggested that I might try seeing if the library would order the book for me. What a novel concept. I had no idea that libraries would do that for just one patron–especially one who lost a book last year and sometimes forgets to return books on time.
I called them, and a lovely resource librarian there put in my request for the book. And if the library decides to order it, it’ll be here in 2 months. AND it will automatically be put on my hold list when it arrives.
Talk about excellent customer service.
So thank you, PPLD. I will honor you by not concluding my ode until next time.
One thought on “An Ode to the PPLD”
yay! don’t you just love the library? who doesn’t love the library? it’s like one of the best inventions ever. let me know if the book is worth a read. 🙂
