Are you overdue?
Do you have any books that you’ve borrowed, from any library, currently past the date they should have been returned?
Are they lurking, looking longingly at the door, seeming like they want to go home, making you feel ashamed?
This week, I have discovered that quite a few of my librarian friends are guilty of keeping books until they’re overdue. Yes, they know how to renew online, or on the phone, or in person, but…it doesn’t quite happen.
Is this one of the awful, secret truth about librarians? Do we know the rules so well we have a wild disregard for them? Is it one of the rules of Librarian Club? Are you an Overdue Librarian?
