Consider yourself fortunate, at my tiny library on this island of 100,000
we must PAY $10. US for every request for ILL, I have now paid $40. and not
any of the 4 requested books, and the charge goes onto my library card, if
it is not paid
I cannot check out any books! This is the most frustrating situation, as I
am attempting to
compile as much history on my family names as I can, for my family members.
here on this island has less books than my high school library had in
California, its dismal.
That is why I am so grateful for the help I have been given on these lists,
without it I would have
only the FHC for research. Oh Maui, is beautiful alrighty, just don't try
to research here.
There is NO free library in Hawaii. GEE!
Jill O'Neall Ching O'Neill, Patton, MacKenzie, Robb,
: Did you try to get the book through the interlibrary loan system at your
: local library? Some libraries don't advertise this service loudly as it
: costs them time to find the book and then postage both ways. The
: library I belong to will do it but they act like the money is coming
: from their pockets and not from my taxes !
