Mary's asked me if I'm around next week because she wants to talk to me about the children's audiobooks she's put the blocks on. She wants to know how the system would deal with fines and charges for these things and the loan rules that Bronwyn and I cobbled together earlier. To be fair, she's got some good points about the implications of imposing replacement charges on children when items can cost thirty pounds or more, for instance.
At some point one hopes that Julia and Mary have a chat about all this some time soon. In a sensible environment they'd have gotten their heads together a few months ago to plan the new stock profile for Catty Library. As it is, the two of the sit six feet away in the Management Suite so communication is impossible.
