Fine Amnesty Week
Did you find a book from the library that you thought you lost?  Is the item so overdue that it's racking up late fees?  Is your book a few days late?  No worries!  National Library Week is also Fine Amnesty Week.  What does this mean?  All week there will be no fines on any Winona Public Library material.  That means that your Library DVD that is a couple of days late - no fines!  The book you are afraid to return, because it has a large fee - no charge.  Dig through your house, find those items, because all throughout the week nothing will have a late charge!
