Hayward libraries to borrow Netflix model

Hayward libraries to borrow Netflix model: City libraries soon will offer a new borrowing system that borrows from Netflix, the mail-based, no-late-fee movie rental service.

For a monthly fee, library users will be able to check out a limited number of materials for an unlimited amount of time. The optional system will eliminate due dates and overdue fees, asking for money upfront in return for no worries later. Pricing would begin at $2.99 a month for up to three items out at a time.
