The Plainville Public Library is granting amnesty on fines for lost items this month in an attempt to retrieve its missing books and videos.
The library charges a maximum $5 late fee for items deemed lost, but it will waive that fee if items are brought in this month. If patrons are unable to find the lost items, they will be charged for the cost of the items but will not have to pay the $5 fee.
Library director Melissa Campbell said more than $3,500 worth of materials has gone missing in the last two years. "We really want these back, because other people are waiting for them, too," Campbell said. For more information, call the library at 508-695-1784.
