Just Canadian ingenuity..

You will find a used one here for four bucks + shipping. Please make sure you pick the right one. Till it arrives you may have to pay the fines.

I was in a same situation once with a book which I got second hand at chapters and another with DVD which I bought at $ 7 from walmart at squareone. Most DVD titles are available there. You need time and patience to search it.

1. You can scour Craigslist and/or Kijiji. Chances are less but a good try nevertheless.
2. Look for used DVDs in video stores.
3. Make a trip to Chinatown. You are sure to find this DVD for $5 or less.

Please don't try and hatch a scheme to avoid this. Your son is responsible for losing something. Circumventing will only send a wrong message to him. No?

With regards to books they do accept used books as long as there are in good condition.

However for DVD in my case they asked for an original in sealed condition. Maybe in your case the library may accept a used DVD. Your library can better advise. If you are ordering on net make sure to check the time to receive and the shipping cost as it may not be worth the trouble. The shipping cost also includes the tax and may cost $ 6 - 7 on top of the DVD cost.

Another way though not recommended is to rent from a shop and pay back to rental shop as lost. This could be lower in value as compared to library cost, as long as library accepts it. No reference of the source must be there on dvd.

The funny part is I found both the lost objects later on. One was with the library itself. So it may be wise to take some more time from library and just search for it again.

Ouch! That's very dishonest.
Seriously, don't sweat it.
If they accept a used replacement (check with them first), then buy it off EBay or wherever and replace.
If not, just pay the fine.

If you later find the disc (quite likely it's still in the house), then auction it on Craigslist or EBay and recover part of your loss.

U could very well have returned the DVD and have fogotten about it.
Brampton libraries are not well managed and sometimes returned dvds are listed as still checkout...

This happened to me twice.. I had to write a formal complaint before status was corrected
