usually i put things on reserve at the library and then go in and pick it up once they have put it on the special reserve shelf for me, so i don't have to hunt through the library with my three rambunctious-i-think-i-know-how-to-whisper-but-not-really-as-i-run-up-and-down-the-aisles children. lately they have wanted to have their own library cards, so we got one for E and A for two libraries that are near us. they are thrilled. B is not too upset he doesn't get one yet (since he's only 2) so for now we are good:) i made them little felt wallets to help them keep track of the cards, since as the lady at one of the libraries informed me, "it's $5 to replace a lost card"...i'm guessing we are not the first people that will probably lose a card:) but in an effort to help them keep track of their cards, i made little wallets with a tutorial from Craftiness is Not Optional and it was simple to do, so if you have need of a library card, or any other card holder, that is a good tutorial. but really i am writing this post for another reason...just to ponder the weirdness of the library reserve system. so i put things on reserve and it seems like they come to me all at the same time. does this happen to anyone else? i wish there was an option to delay my hold for a week or something but still have it come to me in the near future...does that even make sense? like, skip me and then keep me on the list as next after the person after reads it... because right now i have from the library
