Hefty late fees bring in cash for IN libraries

Anonymous Patron writes WISH-TV: Libraries across Indiana are beefing up their budgets by charging pricey late-fees for D-V-Ds.

The fees can be as high as two dollars a day. The cash is infusing thousands of dollars into library bank accounts and helping the facilities buy more titles.

Jon Barnes, a spokesman for the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library, says fines on the systems’ 25-thousand D-V-DS helped bring in one-point-five (m) million dollars last year _ up 500-thousand dollars the year before.”
