Announcing Book Delivery Service via Interoffice Mail

We are testing a new service!  ...Book delivery straight to you through interoffice mail!  Borrowed books can be sent to you at any location that receives interoffice mail through the Summa interoffice mail operation (including most SHMG offices). They can also be returned to the Library through interoffice mail. 

*Some books may not be able to be sent through interoffice mail due to their being particularly heavy, fragile, or bulky - or due to their being on loan to us from another library.  The library staff will use discretion if certain books are too fragile or heavy to send through interoffice mail.
