Chris Haught from SEDC asked me a question about how UT school libraries handle lost and/or overdue book fees. Chris said, "I searched and found a lot of opinions and district policies, but nothing definitive. I once was told that it was illegal to charge elementary school students for lost books, and even fines because they were too young to enter into a contract."

Any ideas on this topic? We would love to hear your input.
