ALEXANDRIA, VA — Effective Monday, June 15, Alexandria Library will offer an amnesty period. During this period, the library will waive fines and fees associated with materials which customers return during the amnesty period only. Fines and fees associated with items returned before the amnesty period will not be waived. Damaged and lost items will incur a replacement cost, but overdue fines will be removed. The amnesty period will last at least until July 31.

As a reminder, you may return your items in the bookdrops at all library locations. Please note that due to quarantining of items, your returned items will continue to show on your account for at least 72 hours, until they are checked in.

Please contact your local branch if you have questions about amnesty.
