Beat the Fees: Library Announces Amnesty for Overdue, Lost, and Stolen Items
It’s happened to all of us. You’re cleaning a closet or retrieving something from under the bed
and you discover a library book that should have been returned months ago. You’d forgotten
about it, and the library has stopped trying to get it back. If you bring it in and admit you had
it will you be charged? For all those months? What to do?
This is Mr. Opportunity calling…
In anticipation of the introduction of a new fee schedule for overdue library materials, both
LBCC libraries are announcing a first-time ever period of amnesty. Books belonging to LBCC
library that were lost, stolen, kept overdue, even found in a thrift shop can be returned with
no questions asked and no fees assessed between May 15 and May 31, 2011. Bring them
to the check-out desk, or drop them, anonymously, in the outside book return bin. Reserve
books are not included in this offer, and it will not be repeated once the new fee schedule
takes effect June 1, 2011.
So now’s the time to check everywhere to see what LBCC library books you might have kept
inadvertently so you can take advantage of this opportunity to return them without challenge
