O4G1636 YUP V yup-that-exists Libraries in LA are starting to let kids read to pay off their late fees Each hour they spend reading knocks off $5 from their balance The idea has exploded having 100 kids a week reading away their debt and over 3500 accounts cleared during the first six months of the program YUP Follow us on Instagram too httpswwwinstagramcomyupthatexists pup-rusty Can we figure out a way to do this to student loan debt imthehuggernaut O O4G1636 imthehuggernaut I would read Ayn Rand to pay down my student loans colt-kun Our library ran the expenses and realized we spent about 3000$ MORE than what we got back in trying to collect late fees So? We dropped them completely No late fees Period If you keep a book it auto renews two times Then it comes up as overdue If your overdue items exceed a certain amount your account freezes You can't use any of the local libraries anymore until you return the items or claim them lost and pay for them If someone else is waiting for the book you can't renew Its that simple And guess what Not only did we save money but we got more materials back More materials were turned in than declared lost as compared to before There was no stigma to it If you had already paid for the item the money was credited back to you Because the people late fees actually affected were children and elderly adults - people unable to regularly get to the library And the stigma of late items was dropped Attitude and mindset are important we still have no late fees And we are considered to be one of the top public systems in our state People from 00 4G 1637 dropped Attitude and mindset are important we still have no late fees And we are considered to be one of the top public systems in our state People from out of state PAY to get library cards for a year because our online Overdrive system is amazing and we have a ton of partnerships and interlibrary loan systems in place AND we suffer less losses of both materials and patrons due to our no late fee policy Serve your public Don't belittle them Fuente yup-that-exists 82689 notas ourclosetistorclothes homoluthor marvelheroes ¿Dónde está la biblioteca?
