Amnesty Month STARTS
In celebration of National Library Week, Vail Public Library will again offer Amnesty Month from April 4, 2021 through April 30, 2021.
This is an effort to recover overdue library materials by offering a “fine free” month. We encourage the return of needed library materials and to promote increased use of the library. While some materials are simply lost, a great many are still in the hands of the patrons who checked them out. With a "no questions asked" amnesty period, the embarrassment and fear of paying large fines as obstacles to the return of long-overdue materials will be removed.
The amnesty does not include overdue fines still on record from previously returned materials, nor does it include fines for lost and/or damaged items.
National Library Week 2021 - WECOME TO YOUR LIBRARY"
National Library Week (April 4 - 10, 2021) is a time to celebrate our nation's libraries, library workers' contributions and promote library use and support.
The theme for National Library Week 2021 is "Welcome to Your Library."
During the pandemic, library workers continue to exceed their communities' demands and adapt resources and services to meet their users' needs during these challenging times. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer endless opportunities to transform lives through education and lifelong learning.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and observed in libraries across the country each April. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.
