Overheard: stolen book on reserve

Physics 205A, fall semester 2011
Cuesta College, San Luis Obispo, CA

(Overheard at the start of the second day of class in college physics, going over student comments and questions submitted online.)

Instructor: (Reading student question.) "'Is there a copy of the required text in the SLO Campus library?'"


Instructor: "I did visit the library earlier today, and a librarian told me that there used to be two books on reserve..."

Student: "So what happened?"

Instructor: "Now there's only one book on reserve. Somebody stole the other book! So you know that kind of person who would steal a book on reserve from the library? Don't...be...that...person..."
