If Your Books are Overdue, Library Wants You


With $2 million due in fines, some 26,000 items missing from their collection, and over 6,000 overdue accounts, the Wichita, KS library has decided, [at long last, it would seem] to engage the services of a collection agency to help get their money. "The worst offender is a reader who checked out 124 items nearly a decade ago and never returned them. The price of those items and fines add up to $2,430.66. Five other people owe more than $1,000."

About time that libraries are taking a firmer action. All these overdues reflects how libraries have not treated with respect. Hopefully, this will restore some respect that libraries deserve.
