Another Woman jailed for overdue library book

A Woman In Indiana learned the hard way that it’s important to return library books on time.

She checked out “Danforth’s Obstetrics & Gynecology” from the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library on Feb. 5, 2001. She returned the book. But because she did not pay her late fee or get a receipt _ nor show up in court _ a bench warrant was issued for her arrest.

Prosecutors later dismissed the theft charge after King obtained a statement from the library showing that that she had returned the book and paid a $16.30 late fee.
