NotAVampireLvr Posted February 23, 2012 Share Posted February 23, 2012 Do librarians mind when you place a hold online for something located in your own library? We do weekly trips with the three kids, but they are exhausting and its impossible to go digging through stacks when you're trying to be responsible for three kids. DH works long hours and our library is only open until 4:30 most nights. With my oldest he's given a checklist we've done together of books to go digging around for but I still have to wrangle the other two while he's browsing because I don't want him out of my sight. (BIG library) I do most of my browsing from my home computer using amazon and do all our holds using my card and my husband's. I feel guilty sometimes placing holds on books in my own library, but I really don't see an alternative without letting my kids run amok at the same time. Most of my holds do come from other libraries anyway, but I was thinking of this as I was placing a hold for a magic school bus book that was listed "on the shelf" in my library, but no amount of digging last week produced it and I gave up.
