The other day I found out that my local library has no limit on how many items a person can check out at once.
I asked the librarian, "What's to stop someone from driving up with a UHaul and filling it up?"
And she replied, with a grin, "Ambition"
@ThisQueerBashesBack AWESOME TOOT!!!11
I work at a library and until Monday we didn't have a limit either. Last month someone got "ambition" and checked out 151 of the community's books. They're overdue now and we don't expect them back. We now have a limit of 50 (which still seems like a lot).
@ThisQueerBashesBack how does that logic work???
What do you mean?
@ThisQueerBashesBack how does ambition stop people
I'm pretty sure the librarian meant lack of ambition.
@ThisQueerBashesBack omg as a librarian, this makes me so happy. we have a limit of 75 of each type of item. no one reaches that point though really. most of the people with 30 or more books out are either teachers or...librarians XD
A mastodon instance for anarchists and libertarian socialists.
