Customer: I'd like to get an interlibrary loan please. How long would it take?
Dogsbody: An interlibrary loan? Typically, about a week to ten days.
Customer: That long? I wouldn't be able to get one by tomorrow?
Dogsbody: Er, no. Unless you can find a library anywhere that could get a book to us by tomorrow.
Customer: Oh - you mean the books actually come from other libraries?
