Patrons will notice the “Place Hold” option has been removed for print items. This will last only while LION Libraries are closed for the COVID-19 pandemic. The reasons are two-fold: Our libraries aren’t able to share items with the public at the moment, and we don’t want to overwhelm our delivery service when we return to normal operations. Patrons will still be able to add items to their personal lists for future reference.

Description
Apatow shares a collection of "writing from all disciplines-- short stories, poetry, essays, humor writing, journalism, memoir, cartoons, sketches, and even television pilots." Most were selected for their humor, but the author admits to selecting a few because they were so personally meaningful to him.
