One of Constance’s most pleasurable activities is visiting the Public Library. At least once a week for the past twenty years she has been making the trip here to settle down in a comfortable chair and nourish her mind and soul with such heart-warming titles as Alternatives to Neoliberalism, a Marxist Perspective and Post-Anarchist Considerations on Totalitarianism and the Downfall of Capitalism. She prefers to do her reading at the library rather than borrowing the books and taking them home; she can never seem to find the time to read at home, not with 11 cats competing for her attention. The library is an oasis: calm and tranquil and for the most part free of cat hair. For the past few weeks she has been absorbed in a fascinating book called Direct Action versus Parliamentarism: The Impotence of Political Parties for Social Reconstruction and is looking forward to churning through several chapters today over a wholemeal watercress sandwich she brought from home. 

Except today she can’t find the book on the shelf. She scratches her head and looks again. Surely nobody could have borrowed it? Nobody has borrowed that book, ever…she noticed the first time she plucked it from the shelf that the card in the pocket in the front had never been stamped, was pristine, unsullied, unmarked…unloved. Much like herself, she had thought wrily.

She searches fruitlessly for another few minutes then admits defeat and approaches the front desk. The male librarian on duty listens with a serious expression while she explains.

Librarian: Somebody may have borrowed it. I’ll just check.

He taps some keys on his computer then gives a small nod of triumph.  

Librarian: Ha! I was right. It’s due back on the 21st.

Constance: What? Somebody’s actually borrowed it? That’s incredible. Nobody has ever taken it out before! I was thinking that it was a bit like me.

Librarian: What do you mean?

Constance: Oh, nothing. A very lame joke. Nobody’s ever taken me out before, either. You could say I’ve been permanently left on the shelf. 

Librarian: I find that very hard to believe.

Constance: What?

Librarian: I said, I find that very hard to believe.

Constance: That’s what I thought you said.

Librarian: I can reserve it for you when it comes back. Do you have your library card?

Constance hands him her card in slow-motion: it’s as if she’s been hypnotised.

Librarian: My name’s Stanley.

Constance: I’m Constance.

Librarian: I know.

Constance: What?

Librarian: It says on your card.

Constance: Oh. 

She wonders if it would be too forward of her to ask if he likes cats.
