Library staff use only
Titles may be requested either through the send list (a few specific titles for a specific patron) or as a Mobile Collection. If a request is made through the send list, the W.L.C. titles are treated as any other item sent to fill a hold.

If larger quantities for longer periods of time are required, the Mobile Collection allows you to tailor the items to the needs of your community.
