damaged.

I am on the library board. That is right. I was voted in. Yup. Who knew that anyone knew me?

Last night, as I attended my first meeting, we discussed the new fee policy for damaged books. The librarian brought show and tell; a variety of damaged items.

The most shocking? Boogers. You heard that right. She opened a book and it had tons of boogers. And it was now considered damaged.

So our first item of business was to add boogers to the itemized list of fines.

Okay - we didn't really add it to the list, but we so should have.

what in the world ever inspired you to do something so grown up? are you going to run for office next? all i am is...awed.

Jacks said...

Oh. no. not so grown up. Although maybe it will force me to be. I didn't officially run. No - it was complete coercion.

Well it looks like Lehi has a booger vandal. Get Chief Wiggins on that right away!
