DeKalb County Public Library Offering Fine Forgiveness in April

Are fines and fees on overdue, lost and damaged materials keeping you from enjoying the great resources at DeKalb County Public Library? In advance of its move to a new and improved catalog, the Library is offering a Fine Forgiveness program this April you’ll want to participate in. The amnesty is an opportunity for you to clear your library record and for the Library to recover overdue materials.

The Library Board of Trustees has approved the Fine Forgiveness program for three weeks--Monday, April 3 through Sunday April 23, 2017. Library Director Alison Weissinger urges patrons to take advantage of the opportunity. “Don’t be embarrassed to bring in those long overdue books, CDs, DVDs and other items--even if they are old,” she says. “Many long overdue materials are still valuable and can be put back into the collection and used again.”

The Fine Forgiveness program includes a waiver on the first $10.00 owed and a 50-percent discount on the remaining balance for patrons owing $100 or less. Patrons owing more than $100 are asked to call Library Administration at 404.508.7190, where assistance in clearing their accounts will be available.  For complete details about the program, click here.
