"So you're OK for taking the Mobile out on Saturday then, Billy?"
"I guess so. What do you want me to do?"
"How do you mean?"
"What are my aims and objectives?"
"They just stared at me," he told us later in the staff room. "They hadn't thought about that."
"Fancy saying 'aims and objectives' to librarians!"
"I know, but it's nice to know what they think you're supposed to be doing."
"Do you work Saturdays?"
"Only Saturday mornings."
"So what's happening on Saturday afternoon?"
"Nancy says she's busy."
"So it's your problem now?"
"Apparently so. They're dead handy at dropping hot potatoes in your lap and walking away."

Billy Meredith is in a meeting with Jack Harry and Nancy. They've decided he's taking the Mobile Library out to next Saturday's Urban Village Fête at Pottersbury Road.
