In conjunction with the Library’s June 8th reopening, we are pleased to announce that all library patrons will receive COVID-Relief Amnesty for billed charges on patron accounts incurred between January 2016 and December 2020. All charges have been waived. In light of the financial and social impacts of the last year, we are excited to welcome everyone back to the Library fine free with full access to materials and services.

  • Overdue Items: Return your items to the Library no matter how overdue, and no fees will be assessed. In fact, we’ll say “Thank you!” and will likely extend an air high-five!
  • Lost and Damaged Items: If you’ve permanently lost or damaged an item checked out prior to January 2021, all associated fees have been waived.
  • Donations: Donations are always welcome. Feel free to donate what you like for late, lost, or damaged materials, or other charges that have been waived.

Our COVID-Relief Amnesty is motivated by our desire to help our entire community, and ensures that all islanders have access to the Library and all it has to offer. We are excited to welcome all patrons and community members back to the Library with open arms!
