On January 12, 2011, I filled the 10,000th article request since starting in this position March 2008. It was a monumental occasion for me as a solo, so I had to celebrate the event.
I gave this basket of goodies to the requestor as a thank you for supporting the library. The patron was very appreciative.
Since this request I have filled 874 article request. Perhaps I will hit the 20,000th request this year!
**Please note article request refer to in-house requests only and does not include ILL from other libraries or research request. I passed the 500th research request last year and did not notice. Maybe I will reach 1,000 this year.
