Overdue library book amnesty through September 6
Overdue materials checked out from the Athens Regional Library System can still be returned without late fines through September 6. This fine forgiveness program started August 22 in a special effort to get items returned for other patrons to enjoy. Getting late items back on the shelves is especially important due to this year's budget cuts that have reduced the number of new items that can be purchased. The forgiveness does not apply to other fees for things such as lost or damaged books.
