Bananas requested a book that was pretty new and non existent in a  large geographical area.  It was obtained and i was reserve 1 of 2.  Then i become 22 in the queue.  As i write this i am now fifth.

It appears that while libraries do work there reliability and reasons to use a library are subverted by the very people who run them.  Mind you its good other people also want to read it despite being ‘special’.

Good for them but not bad for us ?.  Libraries and the people who manage them do send odd messages.
