pick up the book 是借書的意思?

在一段關於圖書館的對話內看到

A: What are you doing here?

B: I'm here to pick up the book Harry Potter.

請問這裡的pick up是"借書"的意思嗎?

為什麼我查的字典都沒有看到?

它是正式的用法嗎?還是偏向口語?

Update:

感謝你們的例句

但似乎都和借書沒關係(這也是我在查字典的疑惑)

是否能提供幾個有"借"的含意的例句呢??

    這屬於比較口語的說法

    也有"獲得"的意思

    你到圖書館拿起書架上的書大多是要借的 總不可能送你

    所以借書這說法是可行的

    完全同意 rjamesho 大師看法。若你要借的書已被他人借走,你可以預約,待他人歸還該書時,圖書館會代你保留若干日,並通知你去取書。你取得該書後再去辦理外借。保留預約存書和借書,通常是不同部門,所以有上述對話。

    Pick up在這裡,或其他地方,都沒有"借"的意思。

    在這裡,實際上是指“取”書。只不過他是來圖書館取書,也就帶著借書的意思。換句話說,“借”只是implied(影射)的意思。

    pick up本身有很多含義,這含義的變化依使用的語言場景而有不同

    圖書館的對話內多是替代borrow "借",但用pick up 則多是強調To select from a group在一堆類似的物/人 中挑選出來的

    拾起, 撿起; 抬起

    I picked up your book by mistake.我拿錯了你的書。

    安排接取; 使搭乘; 搭救

    Please wait at the school gate. John will pick you up there.請在校門口等候, 約翰會到那裏接你。

    爬〔站〕起來; 振作起來

    His spirits picked up.他的精神振奮起來了。

    使增加〔加快〕

    The car picks up speed with just a touch of the accelerator.那輛車只要你一觸加速器就會加速。

    收拾東西〔屋子〕

    Children, it's time to pick up and have supper.孩子們, 該收拾吃晚飯了。

    掘, 挖

    The man was picking up the ground very hard.那個人正在使勁地挖地。

    染上

    He must have picked up a cold—he's begun to snuffle.他開始鼻塞, 一定是感冒了。

    捉住, 逮住

    He is picked up on a charge of killing a man.

    他因犯有殺人罪而被逮捕。

    好轉; 恢復

    A bit of exercise will pick you up.

    你稍微運動運動就會恢復健康的。

    這是很普通的用法,口語較常使用。您的字典沒有這個單字,建議您換一本比較能幫助你的字典,好的工具書對我們學習者是很重要的。 加油!

    "pick up" is the right use in here. It means "to get", "to collect", ...

    Let me give you more examples:

    I pick up a penny from the ground.

    I pick up what I have left behind.

    The cars start picking up the speed as the light turns green.

    I help to pick up the books that were scattered all over the floor.

    OK, hopefully, these sentences can help you to get the idea.

    By the way, if it is joined as "pickup", it means "truck". Since truck is generally used to pick up stuffs then deliver it to somewhere.

    I like to lend book to my friend.
