Library Books… Not for Sale

Patron comes in to renew book for son.

Patron: How much are books here?

Me: The books in our Used Book Nook are $1 for paperback and $2 for hardcover.

Patron: But you can’t buy this one? (holds up renewed library book)

Me: No.

Patron: Oh, because my son is going to need it for a while…

Me: ……

Me (Thinking): That’s what bookstores are for.
