Would borrowing restrictions like the ones imposed by the Los Angeles Public Library have prevented this situation?
There is a loan limit of 10 books, 10 magazines, and 4 DVDs or videos at one time up to a maximum of 30 items on the patron’s record. A teacher using a Teachers Library Card may borrow a total of 50 items, with some restrictions, at any given time with librarian approval.
