If you have been fearful of returning your books to the library atleast in Virginia Beach all is not lost! The Virginia Beach Public Library said it’s allowing its customers to return the outstanding items between Jan. 1 – 31 to have their associated fines dropped.
- Library items must be returned to VBPL from Jan. 1 – Jan. 31, 2021, in order to have the fines canceled.
- Customers should take overdue returned items to VBPL’s outdoor book drops.
- VBPL will cancel overdue fines associated with the returned items, but please allow 24 hours for it to process.
- Customers may continue using their library accounts or apply for a new account, if necessary.
VBPL said it will not be distributing refunds for any fines that were already paid, even if the item is returned in January.
If Virginia Beach is doing that other cities may be too. Be sure to check your local library and see if they have any special programs set up!
