Measuring time by library loan due dates

In academic libraries there are numerous loan categories ranging from overnight loans (or even shorter – I studied at a university which issued hourly loans with hefty fines for being minutes overdue) to six week loans.  The six week loan category is a rare one for the school resources used by our trainee teachers.

I am often reminded of important upcoming dates by the due dates of the books I issue.  For instance if I stamp teaching practice books for Mother’s Day I know it’s time to start planning on buying a gift.  If that date appears a few weeks later, on the weekly loans, I know I’m cutting it a bit fine.  If I stamp an overnight loan book with that date and I still haven’t posted the card, I know I’m in big trouble.

Sorry mum 😦

You don't have to be in primary school to make your own Mother's Day card!  I made this for my mum last Mother's day.
