- What do yer mean?
- Are you a member of the library?

I don't know about that.
I only want a book on falconry.

You have to be a member
to take a book out.

- I only want one.
- Have you filled one of these forms in?

- No.
- You're not a member, then.

You'll have to take one of these home
for your father to sign.

- Me dad's away.
- You can wait till he comes back home.

- I don't mean that. I mean he's left home.
- I see. Your mother'll have to sign it.

Ar, but she's at work
and she'll not be home till tea time.

There's no rush, is there?
I've never broke a book.
I haven't tore it, or...

Look at your hands. They're filthy.
We'll end up with dirty books that way.

- I don't ready dirty books.
- I hope you don't. You're not old enough.

Me mam knows someone who
works here. That'll help, won't it?

No, not at all.
You still have to have the back signed.

To be a member, you'll have
to have somebody over 21

who is on the borough
electoral roll to sign it.

- I'm over 21 .
- You're not over 21 .

- Ar, but I vote.
- You don't vote. You're not...

I vote for me mam.
She dun't like votin', so I do it.

- Just have to wait for it, won't you?
- Where would I find a book? In a shop?

You'd have to go down the street.
There's a second-hand bookshop there.

- Hello. Can I help you?
- Yes.

I'm rather interested in Noël Coward's
autobiography, Present lndicative.
