Pile of books

Bring back your books!

Our fines amnesty has been extended until further notice. You now have more time to return your books, without the worry of fines.

If you’ve had them a long time, we need those books and other library loans back please. Then others can borrow them and you can choose some different ones. 

To help you find that next great read we are continuing to offer free reservations too!

What, where, when, who, why

What you need to know…

  • You can return your books and other loans now, no need to wait
