The Library Fine System.
The fine system was originally used, but, inasmuch as the fine was ten cents a day, it was deemed too severe a penalty, especially for poorer students, and a system of loss of privilege was substituted. This continued in use for some years, although it was opposed by certain officers connected with the Library. This opposition finally resulted in the present system, which has proved most satisfactory both to the students and for the purposes of the Library. The loss of privilege, however, is still enforced in the case of reserved books, and for flagrant offenses.
