Some of us have amazing memories for due dates and deadlines.  Some of us…maybe aren’t as talented in that regard.  If you fall into the latter category, never fear!  All those late fines that have sneaked their way onto your card? You can take care of them during Fine Amnesty at the library.

How does it work?  Simple – just bring in new paper products or personal care items to the library and we’ll waive $1 of your late fines for each item you bring in.  The donations will be given to The People Center right here in Spring Lake.

Your generous donations will be accepted from November 6 to November 12.  It’s a good deal, right?  You can help support your community while having your library fines forgiven.

What does The People Center need?  Any new and unopened paper product or personal care item will be accepted, but they’re especially looking for:

  • Laundry Soap
  • Dish Soap
  • Bar Soap
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Toilet Paper
  • Household Cleaners

We’ll waive up to $10 of library late fines.  Fines from lost or damaged items must still be paid for.  Don’t have any fines on your account? You’re still welcome and encouraged to donate!

Thank you for your generosity with this program!
