Thanks to Steven M. Cohen for being so helpful and sharing this, though he could've posted it himself. :-)


That's amazing. My local libraries have the occasional forgiveness week that would have cancelled that out. Also, I'm pretty sure the maximum fine is the cost of the book. Anyway, I'm glad for the extra funding this library got.
