Yes, we still collect library fines….but don’t stress it, they really aren’t that scary. These fines are here to remind you that the longer you have a library item, the more the chance is that you are denying someone else the chance to make use of it.
We know that things happen. Toddlers find sharpies and treat library books like coloring books, puppies hide under your bed and eat items, DVDs get broken, books get left on top of cars or on airplanes, and coffee and other beverages get spilled. We aren’t mean about these things, because it happens to all of us. However, it is a part of the agreement that you signed in order to get a library card that you would happily pay a replacement price for anything that gets damaged while in your care.
