I went to pick up a hold from the library today and when I printed out the "receipt" it said I have a fine of 800 kr, which is about $10. I have no idea where this came from, although I read somewhere that some libraries charge for transferring books. But between library branches? That's kind of weird. It's things like these that are really nervant, not being able to read the language and not knowing what is the cultural norm for something as technically quotidien as bringing a book closer to my branch.

It might be from the hold, some of the libraries in Montréal do that. The currency is crazy, I'd feel super rich all the time with that kind of exchange rate.
