Yes, sports fans, I was someone's hero today.
A lady called looking for 10th Anniversary by James Patterson and the stars must be in perfect alignment because it was actually on the shelf with no holds.
I returned to the phone with the good news and she literally screamed like she won the lottery. Apparently, she is #125 on the hold list at the county library.
Unable to believe the good news, she called back less than a minute later to verify that it was really here waiting for her and not a rental (we don't do rentals). Then she screamed again and she said she'd be right down.
I wonder if I should prepare myself for a giant bear hug.
Physical displays of affection from strangers aside, I like being a librarian.
