>The Waiting List

>I wandered by my favorite library branch yesterday to pick up a book I had on reserve and to pay a fine.

While there, a young woman came up to the desk and asked if the librarian could help her find a couple of books that weren’t on the shelves.

The conversation that took place next reminded me of this cartoon:

I was amused but kept it to myself. I know how frustrating it can be a times to hear about a book and want to read it right away, only to discover the waiting list is a mile long. I don’t know why I think I’m the only person in the library system who will want to read a particular book or watch a particular movie…but I do.
