Omnivores Dilemma

Omnivore’s Dilemma via Library Loan

Alison wanted to read Michael Pollan’s latest book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma. When she went to the Belfast library, they didn’t have it, but they showed her how she could order it over the Internet via the state’s library network. That night she browsed through the entire card catalog of the Belfast Free Library, as well as libraries across the state until she found one that had it, and she was able to ask them to send it to Belfast for me to check out. When she was done, she told me: “I can see every book in every library in the state on my computer — that’s pretty amazing!” And now Alison has the book.
