Just Another Day In The Hogwarts Library

, , , , , | Right | December 4, 2020

A student comes to the information desk.

Student: “Someone has taken my bag and laptop while I was away. I left them with my friend but my friend has gone, too, and I can’t get in touch with her. I wonder if staff moved my bag when the bookshelves were moved?”

Me: “Huh?”

Student: “There are shelves now where they weren’t before.”

I suggest that she may have mistaken which floor she is on, and her friend is still there with her phone switched off. She doesn’t think so but goes off to check the other floors. 

Because, of course, the totally reasonable explanation is that the librarians are building shelves, reshelving books, printing new shelf labels and signage, moving the study tables, updating the website, and hiding your bag and friend, while you are downstairs buying a coffee!

No, the student didn’t come back!
