Library Logic

Our County Library doesn't have Johnny Cash's final record. I requested they add it to their catalogue. Two weeks later I got this form note back from them:

We regret that we are unable to fill your request due to this item being previously turned down for purchase. Thank you for your interest in the Library.

Did I miss something here? We can't buy this CD because we previously told someone else we can't buy the CD. Look if you can't buy it for reasons of price or content or percieved lack of interest, I totally understand. But by the logic employed here, the more people request it the more unbuyable it becomes (having been turned down more and more in the past). Very odd.
