In Beloit, Wisconsin failing to return overdue library books is apparently a serious offense. It landed Keely Givhan behind bars for six days. When a police officer pulled Keely over for a traffic violation, the officer found out about her outstanding warrant and took her to jail. She and her family couldn't afford to pay her fine so she remained in jail for six days.

Just how much is a overdue library book fine in Wisconsin? And I wonder what book caused all the problems? Perhaps the sequel to "It Takes A Village" ... "It Takes A Village Idiot".

What book do you think she kept too long?
