There is a Problem With Your Library Record. Please See a Librarian.

After trying to request the book Coop from my library online, this is the message I got...

There is a problem with your library record. Please see a librarian.

Well just slap my wrist, why don't you.

I don't have any overdue books.

I paid extra money to be a gold card member.

I've never written in or spilled coffee on a library book.

I didn't dog-ear any pages.

Certainly it's not because I have too many books on hold...

Could that be it? I have too many books on hold?

That I'm going to be bombarded with books should be punishment enough. (What was I thinking?)

Have you ever requested this many books from your library? Does your library have a limit? Have you ever been in "library trouble?"

What about the books? Have you read any of these or are there any you'd like to read?
