A library amnesty for people who have forgotten to bring back books, DVDs and other items to Donegal’s 13 outlets has just started.
The amnesty started yesterday and will run for the entire month of March.
It is estimated that there are more than 2,500 items outstanding from Donegal’s libraries.
“We hope by waiving fines, it will encourage readers who feel embarrassed by their oversight to rediscover the pleasures in their local library, which include free access to books, online resources and weekly activities.
“This is our first ever county-wide fines amnesty and it applies to all Donegal libraries. The public can return any overdue book, CD or DVD to any of our 13 libraries without any fear of fines,” said a spokesman.
To celebrate fines amnesty month the council is holding a competition for the ‘best excuse’ for a late book!
