Amnesty Week Offers Fine Forgiveness
We are all guilty of it – library materials that we forgot to return on time or at all. Knowing life happens, Brown County Library is offering fine forgiveness during the week of December 7-12, 2020.
Whether overdue library items are few days late or a few years late, fines for items returned during Amnesty Week will be waived.
“If having overdue items are keeping people from coming back to the library, we want to change that! This amnesty program encourages the return of library materials - no questions asked,” said Sarah Sugden, the Library’s Executive Director.
Items returned must be in good, usable condition. As a convenience, items can be returned to an outdoor book drop. Fine forgiveness applies only to items returned from December 7–12 and does not apply to existing fines or items borrowed through Interlibrary Loan.
For additional information call 920-448-4400 or visit www.browncountylibrary.org
