Got library debt? Collection agency will help
The Daily Herald [Illinois] has picked up on libraries using collection agencies. "We don't want their money," Nichols Library Circulation Supervisor Karen Knight said. "We just want the stuff back."
That "stuff" is costing a bundle when it's not returned, officials say.
"A lot of people think, 'Well, it's just the library,'" Knight said. "But we could be talking about significant amounts of money."
