How DO All the Books Get To You?!

Do you ever wonder how the books we order from other libraries get here? Each time you place a request, each library receives a list of books to pull off the shelf. Once we scan the items, the software generates a slip just like the ones pictured below. We insert the slip in the book and place it in a bin. The bin then goes to a sorting facility where each bin is emptied and repacked by library code. We are BRI. The bins are delivered to our library Monday through Friday. We can receive up to SEVEN bins a day! It takes a staff member hours to empty the bins, scan each item in and place them on the shelf for YOU!
