As this is only my first year in the Media Center, I haven't many accrued  
many laughable moments yet, but this one did make us shake our heads.
I work in a private school which has been in existence for almost 100  years. 
During this time the school has undergone many changes, one of which was  to 
eliminate the high school and make the school K - 8. About a month ago a  
woman called inquiring about two books about the Louvre. It seems she lent these  
two volumes to the art teacher and neglected to retrieve them before she  
graduated (remember there is no high school now). It was very important for her  
to get them back as her mother had made a trip to Paris where she purchased the 
 books. This woman who called was planning a trip to Paris this summer and 
would  like to have the books back as reference and also felt these books were 
family  heirlooms. The kicker - she graduated in 1952! She had forgotten all 
about the  books until now (busy with graduation and such) and was wondering if 
we had them  on the shelves or in storage. 
As it was said before - you can't make this stuff up.
