They just forgive the fines if people will return books. On a college campus that is a big problem. We had 100s of books missing.
Our biggest problem was the faculty! They had books checked out for 10-15 YEARS. I had a program where they could keep the books indefinitely but we had to see the book every July. I would send student workers to their offices to help track them down. They would have to use dollies to transport the books.
I heard some of the most incredible excuses imaginable.:D
BTW, you would not believe how much academic books and journals cost.:eek: There was one book I saw--100 pages only. Hardback. The book was over $100! It was an obscure subject that only a prof would care about, so I guess it was expensive because not many copies were made and the writer had to get some kind of return on it.

As for the elderly woman, maybe she should check "Meals on Wheels" ??? She might be eligible.I personally know of a woman just a couple of mobile homes down who's eating canned cat food and rice. There's an elderly woman down the street who's living on canned green beans and white rice.
