Default help with SQL dates


Please help with my stored proc

I need to be able to select all books not yet return for more than 30 minutes, 2 hour and 3 hours repsectively

the following is my code....it works fine but then if my current hour is 1PM...it will display the books borrowed in 12:55 PM, which should not be shown becuase it is borrowed below or less than 30 minutes....How will i check the difference between my two dates with regards to its AM/PM?

alter procedure dbo.getBooksNotReturn
@search nvarchar(1024) = ''
Select titles, isbn, dateBorrowed, status from dbo.books
(@search = ''
    or (status <> 'Returned') and 1 =
      When @search = '30m' and (datediff(hh, dateBorrowed,
          CONVERT(CHAR(20), GETDATE(), 22)) > 0.5) then
      When @search = '1h' and (datediff (hh, dateBorrowed,
          CONVERT(CHAR(20), GETDATE(), 22)) > 1) then
      When @search = '3h' and (datediff (hh, dateBorrowed,
          CONVERT(CHAR(20), GETDATE(), 22)) > 3) then

Just curious, why are you converting the current date to CHAR? I don't have a solution but wondered if that probably has something to do with your issue.
