My son had left his I pad outside the library mistakenly one day. He met me at the front door when I got home from work that night to take him to the library.
We got to the front door of the library to find that his I Pad wasn't there. I wasn't surprised to find out it wasn't. Both he and I became very worried because replacing these devices is expensive.
I went back the following day shortly after they opened. I first asked the younger librarian if the I Pad was either turned in or found by one of the librarians. She went to look for it and came back to say that it wasn't there. I thanked her and the older librarian asked what was going on. I told her about the I Pad and that it is the property of Lindale High School assigned to my son. She also went to go look for it. I asked her if it might have been dropped into the drop box slot. She walked down the hallway and stared into one of the rooms, not bothering to go to where the drop slot was.
She said it wasn't there. I left after that suspecting I was being lied to. Later that day my son came home with his I Pad. I asked him where he found it. Since the I Pad is the property of Lindale High School, one of the people from there called the Lindale Library and found it was in fact there. My son went there after school and picked it up.
I do not appreciate being lied to by these people. This is very unacceptable. I was there to recover the I Pad for my son. There is NO reason for them to have lied to me about this. All they did was create unessecary anxiety over the loss of the I Pad and now a distrust in the people of the library.
