What a bargain! Where else can you get something these days for a nickel?
With the cost of services and products on the rise, it's nice to know that one cost has remained the same for almost 50 years. How many businesses do you know of that can say that? Of course, I'm referring to the overdue fines at MCPL; only a nickel a day per item.
Usually I am a good library steward. When I receive a book that I know others are waiting for, I read that one quickly and get it back way before the due date. I say "usually" because that is not always the case. Sometimes, I find a book I really like and that gets moved to the top of my read list even if I’ve had other books in my possession longer. I do not always read books in the order that I check them out. I also have a personal policy of not returning an overdue book if I’m more than halfway into it.
