Fine Free Library Days at OC Public Library


OC Public Libraries is offering “Fine Free Library Days” through Feb. 24. Any items with overdue fines or items that have been marked as "lost" can be returned and related fines and fees waived.

Demonstrating the library’s mission of providing access to library services for all County residents, OC Public Libraries will be initiating “Fine Free Library Days” to support local communities and welcome back patrons who may have avoided the library because of their fines.

During a similar event in 2011, entitled “Amnesty Week”, 6,700 overdue items were brought back to the library system, equaling $167,925 in returned materials. A survey of 18 branches during that time period revealed attendance up over 4,500 users from the same week the previous year. This increase demonstrated that the Amnesty Week was successful in promoting the library and library services, as well as bringing patrons physically into the library.

“The library offers so many great programs, from storytimes, to job help, to free lunches during the summer months. Through this program, we want to make sure patrons come into the branches and learn about these services,” said Supervisor Andrew Do.
