    Wednesday, Nov. 27 — Inasmuch as a number of patrons of Carnegie Public Library are delinquent in returning borrowed books, it has become necessary to go beyond the usual postal card and letter reminders asking that books be returned. The City attorney has been consulted to the effect that the materials are city property and City police may aid in repossessing books and periodicals long overdue. Charges may be filed in district court and fines or jail terms may be imposed.
