Collection Agency, Rapid Recovery Solution, Replies to Library Recovering Overdue Materials

Rapid Recovery Solutions issues a statement in response to an article released by the Ferndale Patch explaining the efforts of the Ferndale Public Library to reclaim overdue materials using a collection agency.

On February 20, Rapid Recovery Solution comments on an article released by the Ferndale Patch describing how the Ferndale Public Library enlisted the help of a collections agency to facilitate the recovery of non-returned items.

The Ferndale Patch article explains that a library naturally suffers when overdue items are never returned, since replacing unreturned materials wreak havoc on the library's restricted budget. The article asserts that if the overdue materials were simply returned, the library could make full use of their budget to make new acquisitions instead of replacing items that should already be available.

Ferndale’s Library Board of Trustees decided to enlist the help of a collection agency in order to recover or replace missing items. The article mentions that the Library Board felt that a collection agency was the best course of action because it would give other library patrons a fair chance to partake in sharing the unreturned items. Additionally, the article mentions that the delinquent accounts can be settled and those patrons' access to the library’s resources reinstated.

The library, states the article, adopted a policy that would continue to make use of collection services as an incentive for patrons to return library items when they come due. The Ferndale Public Library is reported to give notification that materials are overdue and a claim will only go over to collections if a response is not given in an allotted amount of time.

John Monderine, CEO of the collection agency Rapid Recovery Solution, offers his reaction to Ferndale Public Library’s use of a collections agency to reclaim lost items. “It’s unfortunate that a library and the majority of its patrons can be denied by the failure of a few to return materials. Since a public library is funded by everybody’s taxes, it is justifiable for the library to find ways to ensure the return of lost materials. Those losses can build up and are not just material, but lost opportunity for the community that helps finance the library.”
