I am wondering if
issue is a right word to describe the act of giving a book by librarian to the customer of library. The book that the person ordered previously and now is standing in front of the counter in library and the librarian is giving the book to the person after introducing all necessary data about this person and rental details into system.
So, can we say that
librarian issued the book to customer?
In Oxford Dictionary I found that one of the meanings of
Supply someone with (something) and following example is given
everyone was issued with a gas mask. According to that I think the sentenced I made is correct although one person who knowns English better then I claims that
issue cannot be used in this particular context.
