Get the New Year off to a fresh start and return those long overdue library materials!
The Jones Library and branches will be offering a “food for fines” amnesty period from January 2 - 31, 2016. Library patrons who bring a non-perishable, non-expired food donation or make a monetary contribution to the Amherst Survival Center when they return overdue library materials during this time will have the fines on those materials forgiven.
Please remember that the amnesty applies only to items that are being returned during this time, and not to existing overdue fines on items that have already been returned or for billed or lost items. (Sorry, lost or damaged items must still be paid for or replaced.) So bring back those books that never made it to the top of the reading pile and that DVD you never finished and feel virtuous!
