No fines for overdue books

IF YOU have an overdue library book lurking around the house, now’s your chance to return it – free of charge!

This month, Lincolnshire libraries are holding an amnesty on overdue books, meaning you can return expired loans without having to pay the usual late fees.

Jonathan Platt, head of libraries and heritage, 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.”
