So I was curious to find out how much I have paid in the past few years in overdue fines.
Are you ready?
Don't tell this to my daughter but since 2012, I have paid more than $80 for 117 overdue items.
But the way I see it, that was a great bargain. If I wanted to purchase those 117 books from a bookstore. Those 117 books would be costing me almost $3000.
You see, it was a bargain. I read 117 books for the price of $80. If I was a bit more diligent, those 117 books would have cost me $0.00.

Every time I pay library fine, I tell myself that the money goes to a good cause.
That brings me to another point. I wish we all remind ourselves to donate money to our local libraries.
When you donate money to your library, you would receive a receipt for your donation and your money would be used to purchase more books for the entire community to enjoy.

Let's all be literacy superheros and fund libraries in our community.
|Library has books for everyone.|
The way I see it, an educated community is a much better community to live in.
