Online Video Stores


If you would like to borrow a book or video from your library instead of buying it, and your library does not have the book/video that you need, it may be possible for them to locate and obtain it from another library system using Interlibrary Loan (ILL). You can fill out a request form– either on paper or on a computer–at your library’s Reference Department or perhaps at a separate Interlibrary Loan Department. Some libraries have websites that make it possible for you to make interlibrary loan requests online from any computer. Receiving books usually takes a few weeks or less.

    Only Professionals like Earthworm and Navigator do this quality of work. Thanks so much for all your efforts in this and multiple other hiking areas throughout the years.

  3. Hey, Linda, this is very impressive. Your list is an enormous resource, and thanks to Sandy, it’s found a snazzy home where you can keep it updated. I know of nothing else like it. I’ve already found a few books I want to read. Thank you for applying your unique energy to this project, a terrific expression of your skills and interests. The website has a great look and is really easy to use. Kudos to both.

    Wow Linda , this is an amazing website. I am so glad to have found the Bamaman’s ATlist stuff archived here. So very worthy.
    Well we could do no better , I must say , than to grow the AT museums book collection as an offshoot of this site.
    Sincerely the best, Kent Wilson AT Museum boardmember.
