A One-Time Opportunity...KSL Fines Amnesty!
Do you have a stack of library items that are so long overdue you can't deal with the fines? Have you had some of those items out for perhaps ... years? Here's your chance to restore your library privileges, and cancel those debts with no questions asked, no guilt, and ... no fines.
May 1-June 1, KSL offers you a one-time only fines amnesty. Return those overdue books to a staff member, and have the fines waived (some limitations apply.) We'll help you clear your account so you don't have to deal with collections after July 1, when delinquent accounts will be referred to collections.
Fines amnesty helps to clear up the old stuff. KSL offers this gift of return-with-no-fines for one month. Check the KSL homepage for the news item. Then take your stack of books, etc. to KSL staff, to clear your fines. What a deal!
