Fine Amnesty Week

With their 60th birthday around the corner, the Peters Township Public Library would like to extend its gratitude for 60 years of community support by offering a “Fine Amnesty Week” for its members.

Explains Library Director Myra R. Oleynik, “We have cardholders that we haven’t seen in a while either due to outstanding fines or misplaced materials, and we simply want to welcome them back to their library. This is our way to relieve the stress that sometimes comes with late fees and blocked accounts. It’s a chance to celebrate kindness in our everyday lives and to inspire others to pass it on in our community.”

This initiative will apply only to fines and materials borrowed from the Peters Township Public Library and NOT to fines and materials borrowed from other libraries in the Washington and Greene Greater Information Network (WAGGIN).

Here are the important details:

  • Return any overdue Peters Township Public Library materials to the library’s outdoor Book Drop or indoor Book Return Bin from Monday, October 16 through Sunday, October 22 and overdue fines will be waived.
  • Patrons with late fees may email dfinnegan@ptlibrary.org and type “HBD PTPL” in the subject line. Provide your name and the names of any family members in the message, and your late fees on Peters Township Public Library materials will be cleared.
  • OR, you may call 724.941.9430 and Press #1 anytime during regular library business hours between October 16 – 22 to speak with a Library Assistant to clear your records and to update any changes in your account.
