CLEAR FINES & FEES with Amnesty Late Fee Forgiveness Program

Number of Children and Teens that have received Amnesty:

145

An elderly woman who is homebound heard about the Amnesty Late Fee Forgiveness program but wasn't sure if she had fines because she has not been able to come into a library for a while. She went to nolalibrary.org to learn more about the program; and, while she was on the website, she found out about the Books-by-Mail service (see page 9). She cleared her Library account, applied for the Books-byMail service, and is now using the Library again for the first time in many years.
