Got any overdue BPL books? Wait until next month to return them
The Boston Public Library today announced a fine amnesty for three weeks to try to get people to return overdue books.
From Nov. 1 until Thanksgiving, you'll be able to return overdue books - and CDs and DVDs - to any BPL branch and you won't have to pay a cent in fines.
"Sometimes fines stop people from using their library," said Amy E. Ryan, President of the Boston Public Library. "This campaign is about welcoming our books back and about welcoming people back. We see it as an opportunity to say thank you to our users and to make it easier for them to be part of the everyday library community."
The amnesty only applies to material returned in November; if you already have a tab for previously returned books, you'll still have to pay up.
