Fines forgiven at Vail library

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – For the third year the Town of Vail Public Library is offering a “fine free month” that will kick-off during National Library Week April 10-16. The free amnesty period will run April 10-30.

To remove at least one of the barriers to returning overdue library materials, Town of Vail Public Library borrowers are encouraged to return their overdue library materials without penalty or fine during the three-week amnesty period. 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 embarrassment and fear of paying large fines as obstacles to the return of long-overdue materials will be removed.

For more information on the library’s amnesty program, call 970-479-2187.
