Booking Your Books There are many steps involved in theFriedman’s library on wheels: By Wednesday night, members have called, faxed, or e-mailed in their book requests. TheFriedmans go through the system to see if the requested books are in stock and then locate them (sometimes a challenge; kids don’t always put books back on the right shelves). Every week, there are between 10 and 50 deliveries to make and everyone wants their books for the long Shabbos afternoons, so theFriedmans have their work cut out for them. Not wanting to waste time or gas, they plan a delivery route down to the last stop.
