Library to hunt down slackers, scofflaws
Another library is turning to a collection agency to get back some overdues. The Springfield-Greene County Library is trying a collection agency. The City Council is also considering a bill that toughens a city law by holding library-card holders legally responsible for materials checked out.
\"We’re out to get the chronic abusers who do not return our material, and there are chronic abusers,” library Executive Director Annie Busch said.
The library currently mails about 113 notices each week to those at least 55 days overdue, Busch said.\"
