From The Guardian:
Universities have raised almost £50m [approx. $77.15 million USD] from fining students for overdue library books in the past six years.
Leeds University accrued the most money from overdue books, collecting more than £1.8m in fines for the six academic years from 2004/05.
Manchester University, which collected almost £1.3m, came in second place while the University of Wolverhampton was third with fines totalling £1.25m.
With fines as little as 10p for each day a book is overdue, it shows that students are returning thousands of books late each year. But many are never returned – more than 300,000 university library books remain unaccounted for.
