How do you handle checkouts when a student has a fine? Past practice here by
previous librarians has been if you have a fine we will hold the book for
the rest of the week but you can't check it out until you pay. Now, we are
more concerned with getting books out than making money. It seems ridiculous
to keep a kid from checking out a book for ten cents. How do you handle
this? Is there a cap on the fine, say $1 or $2, where checkouts are cut off?
We currently have 3 week check outs so a $1 fine is 10 days over due.
