Chatham County libraries offer fine foregiveness on April 11

Pittsboro, NC – National Library Week is April 8-14, 2018.  Celebrate with Chatham County Public Libraries as we host a “Fine Forgiveness Day” on Wednesday, April 11!

Return overdue items and have late fees for those items waived!

Patrons must visit the Library in-person. Fines will not be waived for items left in the drop-box or via phone requests.

Only overdue fines will be waived. Fine forgiveness does not apply to replacement costs or to processing charges. Library materials that become overdue after April 11 are not eligible for fine waivers.

Bring your overdue items to your favorite branch during regular business hours to take advantage of this opportunity!

Hours of operation on April 11 are:

  • Chatham Community Library (Pittsboro): 9:00 am – 8:00 pm
  • Goldston Library: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
  • Wren Memorial Library (Siler City): 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Fine forgiveness allows the library to recover materials and encourages those with overdue items to reconnect with their Library! The program aligns with the Library’s commitment to eliminating barriers to service and providing basic access for all, especially those most in need of library services.

The 2018 National Library Week celebration marks the 60th anniversary of the first event, sponsored in 1958.
