    Default Library problems

    I drecently made friends with a very attractive librarian and asked her
    out for a nice evening.

    Two weeks later I got fined for returning her late.

    SWMBO was a librarian. A few weeks after we got married I remember going around to her folks place to pick some of her stuff still remaining there. As perhaps to be expected from an avid reader and librarian there were a number of boxes of books which I took no notice of during the move. The "stuff" was assimilated into "our stuff" but a few months later I noticed two boxes of books were stashed in the back of a large cupboard and on closer inspection I saw they were books from the Uni where SWMBO studied. When I asked her about these she sheepishly told me that they were books she had borrowed and not returned and was now (some 4 years later) too embarrassed to return. I thought about it for a while and then offered to do it for her but wondered about the hefty "fines".

    Not long after that I changed schools where I was teaching and it turned out the librarian (male) at the new school had gone thought the librarian uni course at the same time as SWMBO. When I told him about the books he laughed and said those books were not borrowed but stolen. The books were always being borrowed by other students thus often unavailable so a small group of students conspired to steal the books. The way they did it was the books were taken to a coffee shop on the ground floor of, but still inside the library - the only "security barrier" blocking the coffee shop from the outside world was a 6ft wide fish pond - during quiet times when no one was around one student would throw the books across the fishpond to another student waiting on the other side.

    Anyway I did eventually return the books - I just dropped them off outside the library door just before opening hours.

    A librarian I once knew had a T-shirt that said "Librarians are novel lovers".

    Never judge a book by its cover
