the librarian who checked them out should be able to identify that you're not the person who checked them out. show an ID as proof.
It don't understand why such a serious issue was posted on FML. It starts with a stolen library card, but pretty soon, your family won't be able to tell the difference between you and the thief. They'll laugh as he makes allusions to "Huckleberry Finn" and "Crime and Punishment" that /you/ might've thought of if you'd taken them out. Pretty soon, your beloved child will be asking /him/ to read "To Kill a Mockingbird" to them!
Did you report it stolen or lost in the first place? They should have flagged it in their system so that no one could use it. If so, then fyl. If you didn't, then ydi.
They probably thought it was just misplaced, and that they would find it. And if someone else found it, it was an unlikely target for theft. Clearly, the theft happened. But to say as soon as you misplace something as usually innocuous as a library card you should have canceled it, so YDI, seems a bit extreme.
