What Was Your Biggest Library Fine?

Ummm. $37.00. Yeah. I could have bought two more of her books.

I hate to say this...but $56.00 and some change. Lost a book for over 2 years, found it, returned it, had to write a check...should have just purchased the darn thing.....

Hi Shannon! Thank you for stopping by and saying hi! I know God is working. My rash is calming down somewhat- now working on trying to get rid of a massive yeast infection from the massive doses of antibiotics. Go to Dr Fri for big toe check (where I got the rattlesnake bite)- am hoping he will let me get from under the "house arrest" He is hopeful that I will not need additional surgery on the toe due to the dead skin. wonder if my feet will ever look pretty again!! Just thankful I still have the toe and am asking God for patience to stay in my chair till Friday !! Just keep thinking of all those projects and you know I don't have that breakfast nook finished yet!

I almost had to buy a 50.00 book because I couldn't find it. The library had a 6 month grace period and thankfully it showed up (I remember it being the most odd place but cannot for the life of me remember where that was!!) They ended up waiving all late fees!

Wow. Not so good, Shannon! Inflation has hit the library fines, it would seem.
I think they should have shown you some grace!

Lol! Wonder if I still haven't returned a book from two years ago? I guess it's still mounting. It's okay. If only library fines were tax deductible. he he.

I boxed up a pile of library books before a move several years ago. I've finally found them, but I guess they wrote them off because I have to pay $450 to use my card again!!
