Related questions: At the school library where I work we empty out the student patron database at the end of the school year. Is there a way to do this using Handy? Empty seems to happen on all the databases, including the inventory catalog, at once.

On the Miscellaneous tab in the Borrowers window click Delete All Borrowers. All displayed records will be deleted. You cannot delete a borrower if there are some outstanding (not returned) items.
