January is Fine Amnesty Month

Benefiting the Josephine County Food Bank and Josephine County Animal Shelter, all of January is declared Library Fine Amnesty Month at all four branches of Josephine Community Libraries.

LibraryCardHandsIn return for donations of nonperishable, non-expired food items for the food bank or pet items (pet food, toys, blankets, and so on) for the animal shelter, JCLI will credit accounts with previously incurred fines on overdue items returned throughout January. Each donated item forgives $5 in fines.

Returned overdue items must be in good condition. Note that fees for lost cards or lost books, and charges for damaged items are not included in the Fine Amnesty program.

Bring your donated items to the checkout counter to get credit against your fines.
