Public Libraries In Jefferson County Will Offer Fine Amnesty in February 2020

Jefferson County, AL – The Public Libraries In Jefferson County will offer a Fine Amnesty in February 2020. During this month patrons can have their overdue fines removed from their account and begin using their library card again.

It’s time to pull out that long overdue library book, because February is Fine Amnesty Month for The Public Libraries In Jefferson County.

Regardless of how overdue an item is, all Public Libraries In Jefferson County will waive all overdue fees, clearing the account for checkout of new materials. Fine forgiveness does not apply to fees charged for lost materials, however.

The goal of this amnesty program is to get patrons back into the library and using it again. We want library materials back and we want patrons to be able to use the library.

Fine Amnesty is available the entire month of February. Simply return your overdue materials to any Public Libraries in Jefferson County and your overdue fines will be waived.
