Late Library DVDs Get Court Play

Bob Cox passed along this one on the dwindling dvd collection at North Babylon Public Library.

Ninety-four of the library\’s DVDs were systematically checked out by three patrons in September and October, never to be returned.

The director has gone to court is asking for a court order to get the DVDs back and have the fines paid.

Taking patrons to court is rare, they say, but not unheard of. Nationwide there have been cases of patrons being sued and even arrested for failing to return overdue materials.
