Lanesboro Library forgives all fines


Fri, Oct 22nd, 2010
Posted in Government

The Lanesboro Public Library has forgiven all outstanding fines for overdue materials and will not impose additional fines for the remainder of this year.

"With our new director, Tara Johnson, at the helm, we want to start everyone with a clean slate," said Library Board Chair David Hennessey. "All fines on our records are being erased and staff will not charge any overdue fines for the rest of 2010."

Johnson said she hoped the announcement will bring people into the library who may have stayed away because of overdue notices.

"Of course we want overdue materials back in circulation, and this will encourage that," she said. "More importantly, I'd love to meet more of our patrons. If anyone has been reluctant to come in because materials are overdue, they needn't be now. I hope they'll come in and see what's new on our shelves!"

The library, in the Community Center Building in Sylvan Park, is open staggered hours Monday through Saturday. For a complete schedule visit their website at www.lanesboro.lib.mn.us or call 467-2649.
