Amnesty on overdue books

Have your say

ANYONE who has forgotten to return a library book and worried about it ever since is to be given the chance to wipe the slate clean.

All libraries in Lincolnshire are offering an amnesty on overdue books, meaning customers will be able to return expired loans without having to pay the usual late fees.

Jonathan Platt, Head of Libraries and Heritage at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Often people will inadvertently forget to return a book, then worry about having to pay a fine. This amnesty is a chance to bring them back free of charge. It will also mean that these titles again become available for others, so everybody benefits.”

Lincolnshire’s libraries have over a million books to chose from.
