Restroom floor, Library materials found in the

Any book, periodical, etc. found in the restroom floor should be left untouched. Simply go back to your office, create a new location in the catalog for "Second Floor Men's Room," and update the record for the item to reflect its new location.

People magazine, I can understand. Sports Illustrated? Okay. But why the Dictionary of Medical Acronyms and Abbreviations? Or maybe it's best not to know.

Sorry, I don't know how to embed the links for use in the Comments box. If some lyberryan out there will take 30 seconds off from betting the ponies and tell me, I'd be obliged.

Library patrons do strange things in restrooms. Best not to know.

Absolutely-- don't go there! Yesterday someone had to wake up a guy in our restroom who was snoring.
