Ku-ring-gai libraries at St Ives, Turramurra, Lindfield and Gordon are offering a fine amnesty between 1 and 14 December for tardy borrowers who return their items during the two week period.
No questions will be asked and all fines waived during the amnesty and library staff are hoping their gesture of goodwill will be matched with a haul of forgotten books and other items.
Borrowers simply need to go to one of the libraries with their overdue items and present their library card between 1 and 14 December to have any fines waived.
Items can also be returned via the after hours chutes for borrowers unable to attend the library during opening hours.
The fine waiver only applies however to overdue items, not those that are lost or damaged.
Extra library staff will be on hand to assist borrowers returning items during the amnesty period.
Those who take advantage of the fine amnesty are also being encouraged to bring in a donated hamper gift of food or toys to the library for the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal.
