I remember having a book turn up one year at my home that was a year or more late. I called the Bellevile public Library and was told that I had to pay the maximum fine of $15. I asked what the fee would have been if I said it was destroyed.. she said $40, the relacemet cost (for a 1951 edition of some bedamned book on the Search for the Abominal Snowman"..)so I returned it, payed the fee and five years later I bough the book for $0.50 at the annual booksale... Librarians are evil.
