Texas librarian has had enough, asks police help on overdue books
— reported by Associated press, found at Family Badge
Librarian Barbara McCutcheon is so fed up with overdue books, she wants the violators arrested.
Believe it or not, the police chief agreed.
“If Barbara has books out that are not returned, then we will make reports and begin to seek arrest warrants. We will start arresting people for prosecution after the 15th,” said Mike Bankston, chief of the Police Department in Bonham, a city of about 10,000 people 70 miles northeast of Dallas.
And Houston’s libraries get slammed for reporting unreturned books on credit reports. I wonder how customers would react to this?
