The Fayetteville Public Library will offer its first-ever amnesty week for overdue items from Monday, Sept. 12 through Sunday, Sept. 18, according to a news release.

Fees will be waived for any overdue items returned to the library as long as they’re in good condition. Residents may also have any existing overdue fines waived. Patrons wishing to have fees waived must come into the library and make the request at the checkout desk.

Gwyneth Jelinek, manager of circulation services, said the amnesty week is being held to thank the community for their support for the library. The library is also hoping to recover materials that have been thought lost or missing and recirculate them to the community.

The promotion only applies to overdue fines, and cannot be used for fees associated with damage or loss of items.
