Vail library offers amnesty on overdue books

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO COlorado

VAIL, Colorado –For the second year, Vail’s library is not imposing fines on overdue books to celebrate National Library Week, April 11 to 17.

The amnesty period will run April 11 to April 30 in an effort to recover overdue library materials. 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.
