The patron's home library usually refers to the library branch that the
customer has designated as their "home library" because they live or work
near that particular branch. Often the default setting for holds pick up is
to pick up at the "home library" but the patron/customer can change the
pickup location whenever they want to.
That's the understanding here in the U.S. and I assume that is how it works
in Evergreen but if I'm wrong...someone tell us! And explain why!!
