"If you’ve ever failed to return a library book, you’re not alone - even George Washington was a library scofflaw. And if you live in Los Angeles, you can return your books without fear of a fine for the next two weeks, regardless of how long you’ve had them checked out. It’s all part of an increasing trend of library amnesty programs aimed at welcoming forgetful or unlucky patrons back into the fold.
The Los Angeles Public Library’s amnesty period, which lasts from February 1 through February 14, is as much an attempt to regain lost patrons as lost books. “Nothing can keep us apart, not even late fees,” announces the library on its website, in a Valentine's Day-tinged message about its amnesty program".
No site da biblioteca, pode ler-se:
"With love in the air the two weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day, the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) will be playing cupid, reuniting you, your overdue books and our library shelves. These former sweethearts have missed each other, and the library has missed you! Reconnecting has never been so easy".
