i gave my linrary card to my sis, and she borrrowed bare books and never returned them, they kept sending me letters everytime the fine increased till it was someting like £56, my sis just told me to just ignore them, i was well furious because my name was being ruined, eventually they stopped sending me the fine letters, but i can nver go to any library in that borough, as my name is blacklisted
God only knows. I have a book on my bookshelf I borrowed from the college library in September 2007 and it's been incurring a 5p fine every day since then so that's about £25.50 I estimate. I'm too scared to take it back.
£30something, this was when I was 13/14 so didn't pay
But, £27.80 was a few months ago = humongous flu and lazy parents who would n.o.t drive me to the library (its too far away to walk while dark) + they didn't want me to dark (this was when it went dark straight after school, and I work all day on Saturdays.
To say the least I was pretty pissed off when my mum had a hissy fit at the bill and made me pay.
One of the books was hers!!
Thankfully, I knew them quite well, and when they were in their office I sat on the spinny chair and deleted the amount from my account. Simple. I'm (purposely) on Christmas-card terms with my college library staff this year, too.
Only good things can come from befriending librarians.

I think mine is the worst...i'v had a public library fine up to £60. This was last year, i paid of some of it but still have £20 left. But because i haven't taken out any books since then i think it's gone unnoticed.
