So, here is the first ever "Stupid Things Patrons Say" card:
The patron was very upset because the book she wanted "How to Eat Fried Worms" by Thomas Rockwell (1953) was not in the library when she came in. So she wanted to know if the next time if came in if someone ran across it if they could give her a call. It was just as if the woman had never heard of interlibrary loaning (ILL) and it was a new concept libraries just came up with when we told her about it. It was horrifically stupid. I am not doing any justice to the stupidity, it really needs to be verbalized.
