We could claim it was a deliberate mistake, intended to see if you check the due date of your library books when they are issued, but the sad truth is we forgot to change the year on the date stamp so all of those books we issued this week are stamped 5 Jan 2010 - sorry!

We are now concerned that conscientious borrowers, worried about returning their books on time and avoiding a reminder letter, will spend their holidays experimenting with DIY time travel, which as we all know can have unpredictable and undesirable results...

Those determined readers already looking out their tool boxes  might find  Charles Yu's How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe  an enlightening (and entertaining) read.

  1. Ha ha! I love the idea of earnest Stromnessians building time machines out of fridges and television aerials.

    Perhaps you can use this theory to explain away any pesky anomalies in the lending statistics for 2010?
