Another Long Overdue Library Book Story, Another Serving of Catnip to the Media

Just google '74 years overdue'.

Amador is now one of 4 California public libraries to own the book -- if they choose to return it to the collection.

Someone took the time to tally a fine of 'a whopping $2,701'.  But the reality is, according to many library circulation policies today, the maximum amount owed would be much more affordable.

Perhaps a staff member at the Amador County Library suggested a donation of $10, which is the maximum overdue amount charged per item.

And I have to confess, I can't remember the last time I saw such a stringent borrowing limit on books.
