Freedom of Information Request

Overdue Library Books

Received: 2 October 2023

I hope you're well. Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 please can I request information about: How many library books are overdue at libraries within your council and how much money in fines are Barnet's libraries owed by people for not returning overdue books? Can you detail (where possible): - Which book has been missing the longest? Inc. Title, author, date it was taken out. - How many books in your local authorities' libraries are missing in total? - The total figure of money owed in fines for the overdue books? - How many copies of books are missing/overdue? e.g. 40 copies of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire missing from Barnet's libraries. I look forward to hearing from you.
