Monday, August 23, 2004 – The Castries Central Library has announced a Book Amnesty throughout the months of September and October, 2004. During this period, library patrons will have the opportunity to return books borrowed from the Central Library, with no fear of recrimination.

Assistant Librarian at the Castries Central Library, Cynthia Joseph, considers the Book Amnesty a prime opportunity for the library to re-acquire a treasure of books that have been withheld by borrowers.

“Throughout the years, patrons have been borrowing books from the library and they have not been returning these books. As a result, our collection has reduced considerably. The
Central Library has designated the month of September and October as book amnesty month. During this period, patrons with overdue books can bring in the books and no overdue fines will be charged,” Miss Joseph said.

Patrons of community libraries throughout the island can also bring in overdue books to these smaller branches. All are urged to take advantage of the amnesty period.
