Vail library offers fine-free returns

VAIL — For the sixth year, the Vail Public Library is offering a “fine free period” that will kick off during National Library Week, taking place Sunday through Saturday, April 18.

To remove at least one of the barriers to returning overdue library materials, Vail Public Library borrowers are encouraged to return their overdue library materials, without penalty or fine, starting Sunday through April 30. Materials returned to either the library or the book drop must be in good condition, but no questions will be asked nor fines assessed.

The amnesty does not include overdue fines still on record from previously returned materials. While some materials are simply lost, a great many are still in the hands of the patrons who checked them out. With a no-questions-asked amnesty period, the fear of paying large fines as obstacles to the return of long-overdue materials will be removed.
