Saw this on facebook last week, and it cracked me up.


  1. Because I’ve certainly had my fair share of overdue books, and
  2. Because those overdue books have caused me such terrible anxiety and shame that I avoided the public library for a season.

So, the fact that librarians may or may not have a problem with overdue library books gives me great relief, great joy, and a bit of a chuckle.


I’m okay now. I’ve paid my fines and (mostly) recovered from the humiliation. Though, I do do most of my public library patronage via Overdrive these days.
