From this morning’s email harvest:
The Interlibrary Loan book titled, “Tax revolt: something for nothing in California” is due back to the Lodi Campus Library.
Please be diligent in returning this book.
Felician University Libraries
So I walk over to the library to return this book, then ask the librarian plaintively where the snacks are: virtue demands a reward, and last time I was there, the library sold snacks for bargain basement prices. “Oh, we don’t do that any more,” the librarian tells me, in all earnestness. “As a 501(c)3 corporation, we’re not allowed to make a profit, so it was determined that our selling those snacks was illegal.” In other words, somebody called the cops on a Keebler elf.
I need this semester to end.
Obviously they should have just started offering them for free, but only to people who check out books. Not something for nothing, something for contributing to the circulation stats.
There’s no point: I am the circulation stat. You can’t build a snack program around one person. Sad but true.
