Hey, Netta!

Join the club!  Mine are swiped regularly. I try to hope people get confused 
with their screen reader and when they hear the title, accidentally  hit the 
check out button, thinking it is like to get a sample or the synopsis.  Often 
people tell me when they see they have made a mistake, they hit cancel, but 
only cancel's its transmission to their machine; the book is still in their 
queue.  They then need to go to the "My Checked Out Books" page and release the 

In the mean time, go to the history page, click on the name of the person who 
checked it out and it will generate an email and you can in that email, cc 
Madeleine, politely naming the book, asking for them to go to their "My Checked 
Out Books" page and release the book.  I try to be polite and remind them that 
hold should be respected and that there are many reasons why a person may not 
able to get their books quickly.

Hope this helps!
