San Jose: Three people owe library more than $10,000 for overdue books

From San Jose Mercury News

” Three people owe the San Jose Public Library more than $10,000 for overdue or lost books, seven more racked up fines totaling more than $5,000 and nearly 130 face penalties of at least $1,000, records obtained by this newspaper show.How book-borrowers could amass such a staggering debt is hard to say — the city refuses to divulge who they are. But San Jose’s highest unpaid individual library fines, as well as the total penalties owed, dwarf those in San Francisco or Oakland.”
