RE-POSTED from SETHCBURGESS.COM, Personal Blog of Seth C. Burgess (19-December-2007)

A few weeks ago I changed my primary library in the OWWL Pioneer Library System to the Sodus Free Library in Sodus, NY. I haven't used my OWWL card in years--having lived in Monroe County for the majority of the last 5 yrs. as an RIT student.

The OWWL acronym itself represents the counties the library system serves: Ontario, Wayne, Wyoming, and Livingston. It is basically a networked system of libraries allowing a cardholder to reserve materials from any of the connected libraries and on a given date, pick up those materials at the cardholder's primary library.

Thus, as Sodus is just off Rt. 104 on my drive between work in Rochester and home in Huron, I chose SFL as my home station. The Sodus Free Library News blog and SFL Calendar of Events & Closings are two resources I've just discovered and are maintained by the Library Director, Carol.

    In the time since the above post was originally written I have listened to many audiobooks loaned from the Sodus Free Library, the SFL's webpage on the Pioneer Library System's site has gone away entirely, and a vote has successfully passed to recharter SFL as the Sodus Community Library (currently in process).

    OWWL is great. I've used it a lot of times to locate a book in one of the system's libraries. I reserve the book online,I get a call that it has arrived and I just go to the front desk and pick it up. What a convenience!
