Allen County has a tremendous public library system. I love that you can search the catalog online. I put books on hold weekly and simply go pick them up when I am notified they are at my chosen library.

This sounds more like a statement rather than a question. And if the questioner already works at the Allen County Public Library, then I would think they would know the answer. Don't know why this came to me.
