(Detroit Free Press)   Well, let me tell you something, funny boy. Y'know that little stamp, the one that says "Detroit Public Library"? Well that may not mean anything to you, but that means a lot to me   (freep.com) divider line 35

So, parents are using their kid' library cards to avoid paying their own fines? C'mon, dammit; how much can it be? Shoot me. No, shoot THEM!

The best parts of that show were the characters that only appeared once, or a handful of times. The library cop, soup nazi and Wilford Brimley as the Postmaster General are at the top of my list.

Without RTFA, I'm guessing this is where Detroit libraries are repossessing the homes of poor people over $1.50 in overdue fees, but the Detroit Red Wings still get to take reference books home despite having half the library's DVD collection stored under the benches in their locker room?

I saw Philip Baker Hall once in our Whole Foods in Glendale - I wanted to tell him I appreciate his scene-stealing talents, but he looked like he was with his grandkids and I didn't want to bother him.

I remember when the librarian was a much older woman: Kindly,
discreet, unattractive. We didn't know anything about her private life.
We didn't want to know anything about her private life. She didn't have
a private life. While you're thinking about that, think about this: The
library closes at five o'clock, no exceptions. This is your final
warning. Got that, kewpie-doll?

And the City Commission hold orgies in the reading room.  And is auctioning off the computers.

If you're a liberal and really want people to know it, you still might want to avoid needlessly trolling in a thread about one of liberalism's biggest failures.  Just sayin'.

"We will be offering a limited-edition, special card," Mondowney said. "It will be for children-appropriate materials, not videos and other things that adults check out. And if they don't return materials then, they will lose that card."

Seems like the special card they're doing may work well for preventing abuse they've dealt with previously.

But I usually thought kids just used their school's libraries for books rather than the city's libraries, so this all seems a bit odd.

So, amnesty for library fines. Great.

What about a carjacking forgiveness plan? Like, say, your first three are overlooked?
Now that'd be something that city could build upon.

School library budgets probably suck worse than public library budgets.

You may be wrong.

Actually, it works perfectly. Fines are a disincentive to return books, once someone has a few fines they are less likely to return the books at all and the cost of replacing the books is higher than any potential fine revenue.
Plus, if you make it so folks with a few overdue books are too scared to use the service, then you are decreasing your client base and with it your statistics (the stats that the city will measure your success on, loan rates, people through the door etc).
The only fees I ever charge are for replacement of lost or badly damaged books.

Ok, lets see. Stuff people in Detroit don't want to pay: Property taxes, parking tickets, water bills, and library fines. Anything else?

Everytime we have a library policeman thread it starts out with Seinfeld and no attention to the lisping monster that will rape you for not returning a book on time, and can only be countered with red licorice. A pity.
