      Nice shot

      I used to go to the Northeast branches quite a bit, until about 5 years ago when I had to pay a major fine (close to $100). Lost in a move three or more of their books. Ok no problem, paid for the books by check. About 6 months later, had to close the checking account due to an ex family member stealing out of it. Any out standing check, didn't think so since the last one was written to the library. Three days later, get a notice from the library that the check didn't go thru. Well I to this day refuse to repay for the fine, since I no longer have the extra money to pay for it. Not my fault that they held on to the check for MONT HS. I am no longer able to check out books. Had to have my children use there dads name and address to get library cards.

      I love books, and the word "Library" certainly epitomizes learning. Nice photo.
