But I did do one really awesome thing: At the library, I noticed that this stupid book has been sitting on the request pick-up shelf next to my books (I request a lot of stuff) for quite some time, definitely longer than the one week it's supposed to be there if not picked up. Today I looked at it again and went PICK UP BY MARCH THIRD? TUNA, ARE YOU KIDDING ME, and marched it over to the library catalog, where sure enough, it had been listed as "lost." Well, of course it is! It's not checked out and it doesn't even belong at this branch. So, feeling very pleased with myself, I trotted it over to the desk so they could un-lost it and return it to its home location.
You're welcome, county. You're especially welcome, person #2 on the request list for the one copy that was previously left in circulation. I r a friend to the libraries!
