I have had a book requested with the following message:
My book will be returned back into the library at its previous position in the FIFO list.) What does FIFO list mean? Thank you.

You must have had a request cancelled. FIFO=First in First out.   Your book was next in line to be requested. The requested cancelled the order so you book went back into line at it's first position.

You may not have been first.  There may have been other books ahead of you that were on vacation or decline if the person had RCS.  But you were probably near the top.
