To save books, librarians create fake ‘reader’ to check out titles

“Chuck Finley appears to be a voracious reader, having checked out 2,361 books at the East Lake County Library in a nine-month period this year.But Finley didn’t read a single one of the books, ranging from “Cannery Row” by John Steinbeck to a kids book called “Why Do My Ears Pop?” by Ann Fullick. That’s because Finley isn’t real.The fictional character was concocted by two employees at the library, complete with a false address and drivers license number.” (via Orlando Sentinel)
