Simply stop by the library between Saturday, September 15th and Saturday, September 22nd, bringing any and all late books, dvd's, and other materials. No matter how long it's been, or even if the returns are damages, your fines will be forgiven.

Things that can be waived: Any debts incurred prior to 10/1/2011; Fines in any amount;Lost processing fees in any amount, no matter when they were incurred.

They cannot waive: debt collection fees, revenue recapture fees, lost library card fees, or lost item costs for items that have not been returned.
