Beware of the Librarian

This just in.  Return your library books or you’ll be sent to jail.

Believe it or not, a woman in Iowa was arrested for failing to return a copy of Freedom Writer’s Diary. I find this highly ironic because this book is largely about a teacher giving her underprivileged students a respect for books.

The library patron, Shelly Koontz, was released after posting a $250 bail.  That’s some overdue fee!
