Over the summer, due to travel and general lack of responsibility on my part, I managed to accrue $9.50 in library charges for overdue books and reshelving fees for books I had requested but never picked up. During this time, my library card also came up for renewal and rather than "(wo)man up" and pay the fees I decided to take a very long (like close to 6 months) hiatus from library visits. Well, today, the last day of winter vacation, brought an end to my self-imposed library ban and brought me (and the kids by default) back into good standing with the Eugene Public Library, which is actually a great thing because I really do love our library and look forward to spending more time there. The kids were overjoyed and kept saying how great it was to be back at the library because we haven't gone there in "infinity years".
What's the most you've ever paid the library at one time? Are you currently reading any good books? I'm always looking for suggestions... especially now that I can check books out again.
