We know that sometimes it’s hard to remember to return those library books and DVDs, and then the fines start mounting up," says the staff at the Macon County Public Library. "So, to give our friends and neighbors a chance to come back to the library, and to give our books a chance to come home, the Fontana Regional Library system is having a 'Love Your Library' Amnesty Week, Feb. 9-14."

During that week, library users may visit any Fontana member library in Jackson, Macon or Swain counties, return or renew overdue materials and when they say, “I love my library” all overdue fines for the items will be forgiven. If an overdue item has already been returned but still has fines on it, people may present their library cards and say, “I love my library” and any overdue fines will be forgiven. And for people who may have lost their card, the library will replace it for free through Saturday, Feb. 14.
