Librarian waived all the fees on my account due to their processing delays, as well as the $7 I racked up when I returned the wrong book and refused to make an extra trip to the library over my long weekend, and the $2 from last semester. Librarians for the win! I feel like I earned customer loyalty points.

It is nice when the library shows a little mercy.

As opposed to the crushing totalitarianism it's famously known for.

Once someone I knew became homeless and got beat up and they still wouldn't waive her fines.

People will go to extremes to avoid paying fines. The LIBRARY has heard it all and the LIBRARY cares nothing for the pitiful lives of its patrons.

Some libraries have fine amnesty days. I'm in favor of that. I think they should have them once a month at least, but it's usually only once a year.

Ironically, the library's form of fine amnesty is a food drive that happens in October.

lostgander said...

So what, you bring canned food and your fines are waived?

wrenna said...

$2 for every can.

Not really true amnesty, is it.

Not if you get stuck with a $100 fine for losing a book, but a gesture towards social responsibility for first year students unfamiliar with how to renew books or the $1 a day fine system.
