Wichita Public Library will host Amnesty Week September 26-October 2, 2022 to give customers the opportunity to return long overdue materials and have processing and replacement fees eliminated.
This is an effort to reintroduce lapsed customers to the Library and get lost materials back into circulation.
During this week, customers with materials considered long overdue (multiple months or years not
returned) can visit any seven Wichita Public Library locations and return materials at the front desk, no questions asked, no matter the condition.
“This is an opportunity to reclaim materials but also eliminate customer barriers to using the Library,” says Jaime Prothro, Director of Libraries. “Some customers haven’t returned to the Library because of embarrassment having overdue materials, and we want to show them all the Library can offer.”
Long overdue materials will only be accepted during Amnesty Week, not before or after.
