Thousands of Overdue Books Returned to City Libraries

A two-week amnesty program to forgive late fees on non-returned library books proved to be a success for the City of Winnipeg.

About 3,200 overdue items were returned between March 12-25, the city said on Friday.

An estimated 3,000 of those items were less than a year overdue and hold a value of $75,000. The remaining 200 were overdue by more than a year.

The city also says 680 library accounts were reactivated and renewed during that time.
