    Library: Fines can't be paid with Chuck E. Cheese tokens :(

    DANVERS, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts library is reminding residents that Chuck E. Cheese tokens are not an acceptable form of payment for overdue book fines.
    Peabody Institute Library in Danvers, Massachusetts, this week the library has had a surge of people attempting to pay fines and printing fees with tokens from Chuck E. Cheese and Bonkers— a Peabody amusement center —this summer.

    The library says the tokens are not legal tender and cannot be accepted.Bookkeeper Sue Kontos tell The Salem News she had counted three Chuck E. Cheese tokens one day before realizing they weren't real money.

    Will they take Bitcoins? I know I will.

    As much as so many tried to use them I guess it was one of those social media fiascos.
    The workaround to library fines is to never check out the books. Then the library person would
    need to come up with another remedy. Maybe reward vs punishment. Return a book on time and get a freebee at Chuckies.
