Am I the only one who finds it rather concerning to see that a librarian doesn't appear to know how to use an apostrophe?

I'm more concerned that FH Library staff (who I think are super) will be discouraged by the fact that the immediate response to their commendable enterprise in using this forum to promote their services should be a pedantic and ungracious comment on their written English.
Thanks, FH Library - please keep it up!

I'm perfectly sure they do a good job but it's a library. Words are at its very core and it's important to get these things right. It is not pedantic to expect a post from such an institute to be grammatically correct. If I was being genuinely pedantic, I would have picked up on the spelling mistake that was quite obviously a typo.

As for the ungracious comment, I think that's something of an overreaction.

Yes, you're right, 'AMFM'; an overreaction, for which I apologize. It's just that when I first saw your post I'd just come back from FH Library where a young woman on the staff had gone out of her way to be helpful, and I guess I was feeling a bit protective!
