I didn't know it but my Sacramento Public Library does.  It's the first time I've heard about it, so this may have been the first time they're doing it.  I got this email from them:

=16pxFebruary 14 - March 15
All Sacramento Public Library locations
Bring back your overdue items and we'll waive your fines.

=14pxDo you have an old Library item, like a book or movie, lying around that you've been meaning to bring back, but wince at the thought of the potential fine involved? You’re in luck because we’re waiving fines on all returned Library items from Feb. 14 - March 15=14px.

=14pxWe understand that sometimes things can fall through the cracks. We also have a sense of humor and would love to hear your reasons for returning your items late, no matter how audacious. Tell us your stories on social media using #NoFineIfFound=14px.

  • =14pxOverdue items in any condition may be returned to any of our 28 locations.
  • =14pxFines associated with the value of items returned, plus a $10 collection agency fine, will be waived.
  • =14pxIf you have already brought items back, but didn’t pay the $10 collection agency fine, visit any Library location to have the fine waived.



 


=14pxThe following items are not eligible for Fine Forgiveness:

  • =14pxPartner Library items
  • =14pxLink+ collection items
  • =14pxInterlibrary loan items

As often as they have free lapdance days. On the other hand, the library fines should be cheaper.

About once a year, but they don't stop you from checking out books until fines total $25.

My sister could have used this about 25 years ago when her kids were little.  The fines got so high on her card and both of her son's cards that she couldn't check out books on any of them anymore.  She returned 95% of the books, but they were always overdue.

So, she got another card for her son, Pete.  Pete didn't actually exist, but he somehow learned to bring back his books on time.

My library doesn't start asking for money until you've racked up at least a $5 balance. And you can pay a minimum of $2 to get back under $5.

Our late fees are always waived because, quoth the librarian, "The MiniKKH's are so well behaved." News to me, but whatever.

How many people still use the library in the internet age? I thought it was just a bathroom for homeless people.
