Entertaining fine amnesty videos

from the San Fracisco Public Library are really fun. SFPL is having an amnesty May 3rd-16th and they're trying to get people to return books through a series of short videos which include Josh Kornbluth pondering I and Thou (an excellent book I must read in its entirety sometime) and Cpt. CB 'Sully' Sullenberger telling folks that the amnesty is great when you really, really need to find a way to tell the librarians 'it got lost in the Hudson River' (Sullenberger is the pilot that famously landed a jetliner in the Hudson without fatalities. He had four books with him, which he was given amnesty for but apparently they were recovered and are going through processing to see if they can be returned.) There are several of these. Check them out.

Thanks to shelfcheck at LISNews for the link.
