Overheard outside my library last Monday (the electronic book return was full/closed):
“Oh no – it’s a library emergency. My book is overdue.”
I was able to reassure her that a Monday holiday is the same as a Sunday… as long as you your book is physically inside the library before it opens for business next, even using the old-fashioned non-electronic book drop (which I was able to show her), you don’t get docked. She told me that she had kept it as long as possible so she could finish it before it was due. I completely get it.
What was the last book you rushed to finish?
