    DANVERS, Mass. - Don’t even think about it. Librarians in Danvers, Massachusetts, said that they’re getting Chuck E. Cheese tokens as payment at the library.

    The Peabody Institute Library has reminded its patrons that while the metal coins may be used as money at the children’s restaurant and arcade, they’re not legal tender to be used to pay fines or printing fees, Boston25News.com.
