Too funny! I assume he never paid the fine. My son use to check out books and materials but never take them back. That drove me crazy!

Barbara Anne

HA!! Thanks for the morning laugh! Your Dad is a charmer!!

Hugs :)

Peggy

Funny story but a "donation" to the library would also have been nice!

Chris

My sister is a librarian and she would likely recognize that story!

Mary Kastner

That is hilarious. Great story to start my day. Have a good one!

Mary

Sherry V.

LOL

Tracey Holzer

Oh that is funny!!

Andrea

That is funny...but probably happens more times than you think. I've found an old library book a time or two going through things at my parents' house. Always return the books without letting the parents know because the parents would always insist it wasn't theirs (which, technically, it isn't, but I highly doubt the librarian came into their house and left it there).

Cute story! I can imagine his annoyance way back when the original incident occurred! Have you ever seen the episode of ABC's "The Middle" where the youngest child has an overdue library book? The poor mom goes to extremes to get him another since he's lost his check-out privileges.

Hildy

That's a funny story!

Jean

The librarian shouldn't have been rude. I've had books show up as still checked out and they take my word for it and just put in a search. Plus my local library - the best library system eve! - doesn't charge seniors for overdue anything!

Let's hope that none of the librarians at that library read your blog. That would ruin all the fun!

Pamo

Oh, what a story!

ina

lol ;p

Jayne

All the librarians I know would be totally amused by this story. Thanks for the giggles.

Mary

I'm smiling! Just loved this story!!!

Julie

Love this story!

Teresa

Poor guy...its hard to take a stand and then have it pulled out from under you. Nice of you to return the book.

Kyle

What a great story!

Anita

OMG! If the shoe fits is right, lol! Brings back memories of my daughter and the books she never borrowed or couldn't find. They actually have a fine forgiveness day where she lives and brings back overdue books then...yup she never learned 😂

So how many shelves did you "clear". My summer project has been going thru boxes of mags and books that have been in a storage unit 13 years. Most are easy, but I do come across one that I just can't part with and that tends to end the project for the day. Now I am told that the library book fair does not accept mags over a year old.... and that is crazy in my mind... and books that are more than a couple of years old... this mind you is for a book sale to raise money to buy more books.

Oh.... I had a discussion with my oldest about library card and she had a big hissy fit and no longer has a library card....

Too funny. The library was like a dear friend when I was a child. Books were too expensive for us to buy as many as I would read (and my parents were teachers who believed in reading). I had to be given and "allotment" of books I could have at any one time. What a treasure libraries can be.

Great story. I was on a cruise last week and spent some time in their library.
While there I read excerpts from several interesting books. One idea I read spoke to me as like your father I have too many books and am starting to burst at the seams. The book was written by an author who was an avid reader who as he was aging challenged himself to weed through his collection. On his 80h birthday he challenged himself to only keep his 100 most favorite books. This was quite a task , which he "cheated" a bit on by counting a trilogy as one. Upon his death his family and friends enjoyed perusing what he had narrowed it down to and spent time postulating about how each book had made the cut. I've been thinking of doing this as well. Thank you for the giggle.
