The case of the missing library books...

I think there may really be something wrong with me.

I can NEVER find my kids' stinkin' library books. Ever.

WHY IS THAT??? Where do they go? Is there a black hole located somewhere under our couch that steals library books? Seriously. You would THINK an intelligent (I am too!) grown woman who has managed to care for THREE children would be able to find two measly little library books.

But no.

I can spend the ENTIRE DAY searching for them and STILL not find one.

It is sad really.

i don't have kids to keep track of, and I STILL LOSE library books, socks, the screwdriver, etc.
So, take heart!

Oh, those stinking library books! I don't even know if Will has one out right now and if I SHOULD be looking for one.

I am the same way. My daughter is 3 and I don't know why I bother checking stuff out for her. I like getting her new books and she enjoys picking them out, but then at home she never wants to read them, she always wants to look at the same books... that we already own. I check out DVDs for her too and the DVDs are $1 a day if they are overdue. I've actually had to buy 3 movies from them because the discs have gone missing. We just did a major overhaul on our house and got rid of a bunch of stuff, moved furniture around, went through everything, and NONE of those movies ever turned up!

On the bright side, the library makes a lot of money from us!

So what happens if you can't find them? Do you have to replace the books? Just wondering since I'm always afraid we'll lose ours.

At our library, if you cannot find an item, you pay the list price for the item plus a $5 processing fee. When you pay for the item, they dismiss the late fees (so you don't pay to replace it and pay the late charges). Then, if you find the item and bring the receipt within 90 days, they refund your money minus the $5 processing fee.
Oh that used to happen to me all the time and 95% of the time turned out they were at the babysitter's house! LoL

We went out-of-town last weekend and my daughter took her library book, AND forgot it. So now we not only have lost library books, we have one that is two states away!

I'm sure it's over here.

I quit going to the library to take out books and started buying books at thrift stores. So much less stress. And in my case, cheaper!
