Oops, forgot about that
There are two reasons I hesitate going to the library:
- I’ll bring home a mountain of books, my writing will grind to a halt, and I’ll spend the next three weeks reading. Not a bad concept, but I have to get my writing done.
- Despite email reminders, I’m afraid I’ll misplace a book and not return it.
One borrower could have used a friendly reminder. Fifty years after checking out a book from the Lexington Public Library, an anonymous borrower returned it by mail.
Overdue fines capped at $6.75, a fact that, if the borrower knew, might have factored into an earlier return. He probably imagined a higher fee. Or maybe the book was misplaced.
