Counterpoint on Library Fines

Having mentioned previous articles about library fines being waived, here is another on the subject - a Boston library filing criminal complaints.

Granted, it's not just regular late fines that are the problem here. Alyssa Toste and Jeremie Crane haven't returned over $500 worth of materials, both recently and a year or two back. These are not small fines.

"The value of the materials is fairly high. We need to replace them," said Martha Holden, director of the Peabody Institute Library.
