NHU-PAC ILL Request #500,000

Congratulations to Sean Fleming at Lebanon Public Library for placing the half-millionth ILL request on the current NHU-PAC system. Request #500,000, for A Piece of Justice: An Imogen Quy Mystery by Jill Paton Walsh, was placed Tuesday afternoon, October 9. It was shipped by Enfield Public Library on Wednesday and received at Lebanon on Friday.

Next month marks the 5th anniversary of this system. With more than a half million requests placed since November 2002, that's a lifetime average of about 1,960 requests each week!
