Overdue Books Could Lead to Death of Library

According to a reference librarian at the Maury County Library in Tennessee, the 5000 books missing from the their collection could ultimately lead to the library having to close.
Those missing books, along with overdue fees, are costing the Maury County Library $136,000.

“That's a third of our budget there,” said Southern. “If we could get that in, that's a third of our budget.”
The moral of the story? Librarian Southern would like everyone everywhere to make a New Year’s resolution to take their overdue books back before they don’t have a library to take them back to.

The story is here.
