Fine Forgiveness program at the library
East Hartford - posted Jan, 22 2014
EAST HARTFORD - East Hartford Public Library is offering a Fine Forgiveness opportunity through June 30. Overdue fines will be forgiven for people who donate new paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, diapers) or new, full-size personal hygiene products (toothpaste, shampoo, soap) that will be distributed at local food banks. The Fine Forgiveness program allows people who have large fines and have been embarrassed to come back to the library a chance to clear their accounts while helping others in the community. The library cannot forgive charges for lost or damaged materials through this program, but people are encouraged to speak to any library staff member about ways to clear their accounts. People in the community who do not have fines but would like to donate paper or personal products to help the food banks, may drop donations off at the libraries any time they are open. The Raymond Library is located at 50 Chapman Place (lower level of the East Hartford Community Cultural Center) and the Wickham Library is at 656 Burnside Ave. Please call the library at 860-289-6429 for more information.
