Dear 100 Hour Board,

Have you ever "stole" a library book?

- MaryAnne The Librarian

A: Dear MaryAnne,

Nope, I've never stolen one. However they did lose one that I turned back in and charged me like $20 for it. I was rather bitter about that since I was like 14 and I had to pay it myself when I knew that I had returned that book.

A: Dear MA,

No, I've never stolen a library book. I have racked up some steep fines in my time, though (I admit sheepishly).

A: Dear "Librarian,"

I currently work at the 5th largest library in the United States, in a capacity which would allow me to steal pretty much any book not in special collections. Under the circumstances, it's a good thing I don't steal books. (I have lost books and had to replace them, though.)
