Fear of the Big Evil School Librarian

Posted on: December 2, 2009

Yesterday at dinner Shoshanna was merrily telling us about going to the school library and checking out a book (Ezra Jack Keats’ The Trip, for those playing along at home) when suddenly, her face fell.  She completely crumbled.  As enormous tears started rolling, she managed to choke out, “I forgot to get it scanned!”

We attempted to reassure her, to tell her that she wasn’t going to be in trouble.  We told her that she should just tell Mrs. S. what had happened in the morning and that they would get it all sorted out.  We told her that she wasn’t going to be in trouble, that this sort of thing happens all the time.

She simply would not be consoled; nothing helped.  Hugs from Matthew.  Hugs from me.  Offers of eating her dinner while sitting in someone’s lap.

We finally hit on a solution.  I penned a note to her teacher which read as follows

Dear Mrs. S,

During dinner this evening, Shoshanna realized that she forgot to have her library book scanned.  She is very upset about this and would like to fix the situation as soon as possible.


That seemed to solve it; the note came back this afternoon with a “no problem” in Mrs. S’s handwriting; Shoshanna reported that Mrs. S just took the book to the library to get it scanned.

Oh I hope she won’t think librarians are bad people. . . please tell her the library just needs to know where books are in case anyone asks to borrow them.
