A very short article from the Associated Press says When Michelle Nash got a bill for more than $350 in overdue fines and replacement costs from the Anoka County Library, she knew something was wrong.
It turned out that somebody else had been checking out CD's and books with the library card that her ten-year-old son, Garrett, lost last summer.
Garrett lost his wallet when he fell off his bike a block from home. The last time he recalled seeing his library card, it was in his wallet.
Several weeks ago, the Nashes started getting recorded messages from the library saying they were holding overdue materials. The fines had already reached $50.
