LOL, how much did you owe? You should just pose as somebody else and get a new card.

How silly? :)

More than I thought, $2.10. The library charges .10 for every day the book is over due.

That's nothing I've had overdue charges of 14 ($23) Though I think they capped it. I'd borrowed a book and forgot about it for a year :wacko:

I think those sneaky old ladies conveniently forget to inform you that you have a book that has been overdue for a year in hopes that when you pay the fine, they will have more money to buy more books..... sneaky old hags.....

In my library, its 10 kr (divide by 8 to get $), for each WEEK its to late. after 50 kr, they call you.

Service! ^_^

I'll see if they got the X-com book :D

Wow, a thread about what libraries around the world charge for overdue books...
Miceless sure got himself THE forum to moderate here. Boy, is he going to be one happy puppy tomorrow :LOL:

Oh yeah, I can bring back books one week late, after that it's 0.20 euro a week per book I think :huh?:

I'm afraid the first thing he'll do is delete this post :D
