This is the time of year I have time to go to the library. There's a lady who works at the check out desk who is a friend of my family. It goes way back, on both sides of my parent's families. The problem is, she latches on to me as soon as I come in the door with polite, but loud questions about my families' health, my employment status, etc. I'm kind of getting to the point that I'm dreading going to the library. I don't want to go over her head and get her in trouble, because I know that she and her family need the income, like everyone else. I just want to have some quiet time to myself to browse. I really hate to think I'll have to go to an ajacent county for library services, because they charge $35.00 per year for out of county residents to check out books. (This is in Indiana.) Any theories on how I could handle this? Many thanks. Jim.
