Responsible borrowing is part of library’s lesson

“Everyday life experiences can teach children lessons – even hard lessons. Unfortunately, the Free Library of Philadelphia is giving up an opportunity to teach its younger patrons a lesson about responsibility. Beginning July 1, the library plans to stop fining children who fail to return books on time. Well-meaning librarians in neighborhood branches recommended eliminating the fines to avoid cutting off poor youngsters seeking library services. Some believe the children are returning books late for reasons beyond their control.”(via Philadelphia Inquirer)
