Combine National Library Week and spring cleaning and what do you get? How about forgiveness for your library fines? The Deposit Free Library is offering a Fine Amnesty Week from April 9-15. If you have overdue books or DVDs, you can return them without any penalties. If you have nothing checked out but have old fines lingering on your card, you can have them forgiven as well.
How do you take advantage of this special deal? Come to the library in person. Bring your overdue items or your library card. If your card is lost, explain it to the clerk. Update your contact information. Voila! Fines owed to Deposit will be erased.
Please note that you must still pay for any lost or damaged items. The amnesty only applies to charges owed to Deposit – not to other libraries. So dig out your overdue items and come on down to the library. Let’s clear up a lot of fines!
