National Book Amnesty Month in April

National Library Week is April 7 - 13th. We are celebrating all month with National Book Amnesty Month.

Librarians know that when times are tough, patrons need to use the public library more than ever. But an outstanding balance of overdue fines can be a barrier to library use by those who most need it. To some patrons, the $5 or $10 required to restore library access could be all they have left in their bank accounts, and asking for fine forgiveness can be embarrassing. Libraries and library systems across the country have been making news with creative—and pride-saving—solutions to this problem.

During April you may return any item borrowed from the Coplay Public Library without any penalty.
