To celebrate its 125 anniversary in the city the Windsor Public Library is forgiving fines for all customers starting December 4.

The library is encouraging customers to return all overdue material and talk to them about outstanding accounts.

“We want to welcome back customers who would like to visit but are reticent to do so because of the barrier presented by fines owing. Materials returned can then be made available for loan to other members of the community. Our 125th anniversary is an important milestone and should be marked by an event that positively impacts the community and is in keeping with 125 years of service to the Windsor community,” said Chris Woodrow with the library.

The amnesty period runs until December 31, 2019.

All library locations will also have displays highlighting the history of the library system during the month of December. Check the library’s website for more information on customer appreciation events happening throughout the month in conjunction with the fines amnesty.
