Overdue books

I know a few parents who might consider this free babysitting at the library.  The kid is indoors, watched by reasonable adults, and being quiet.  If he were untied with a book in hand, no one would ever be the wiser.

Several libraries are waiving overdue fees now, which I am torn about.  Part of being able to use the library is the overdues fees.  It’s a rite of passage for many kids.

I do like that the digital downloads are taken back on the due date, so they never have late fees.  I was thrilled when I learned this.  The only drawback is when you are ALMOST finished with that book, and the library takes it back.  Back onto the hold list for you!

  1. I have heard if you put your device on airplane mode, the book won’t be removed from your device. I believe it is still put back on the shelf for the next person, but just stays on your device since there’s no internet connection.

  2. I love holding “real” books. I also live getting ebooks on my tablet and phone. No matter where I am, I have a book! I can also try a book, and if I don’t like it, one click and its gone! I often read 2 or 3 books at a time. Right now I have 2 on my tablet and one real book I am reading. I 💜 summer reading time!!!
