As part of its celebration of National Library Week, Driftwood Public Library has declared the same period (April 14-20) as Amnesty Week. This means that patrons can return overdue items during this period, no matter how late they are, and all overdue fines associated with those items will be forgiven with no questions asked.
The week-long amnesty is intended as a means of encouraging patrons to return items to the library, and it will apply to all items in the library’s collection. Not just books, but overdue videos, DVDs, audiobooks, music, software and equipment will all have their overdue fines forgiven. Fines will only be forgiven for items owned by Driftwood and returned to Driftwood. If a Driftwood items is returned late to another library, overdue fines will still apply.For the complete article see the 04-10-2013 issue.
