Clean-up time

Last I checked, it was the second news item down the page on my library system’s main page. They’re going to go through their records and delete all the old cards that haven’t been used in two years. There are pros and cons, and it’s probably necessary for them to clean out their database to make things run more smoothly, but had they done this a few years back I wouldn’t have been able to return here from living in another state and have them issue me a card based on my still-existing records.

On the other hand, they probably wouldn’t have been able to say to me that I still owed $3 and change for fines that they had kept track of for the past 5 years or so.
