The great news is the December 5, 2011 to February 5, 2012 Check It In: Fine Forgiveness Campaign. The goals of the campaign are to reclaim overdue books and other materials and get library card holders back into the library to participate in the wondrous world of literature!
This is a no questions asked campaign. No matter the condition of the material, no matter how long you've had it, all you have to do it return it. The same goes for lost books and CDs.
The not-so-good news? BooksPlus, the library's gift and used book store, is closing December 30. Sales will not end with the closing, though. There is a link on the DCPL website to the online store.
