amnesty week at the library

Patrons of 18 Westmoreland County libraries who still have the books, movies or compact discs they have borrowed since 2008 can have their fines forgiven if they return the items the week of Nov. 3-9 and donate a jar of peanut butter or jelly, library officials said.
“If there is one (book, movie or CD) on someone's shelf, we just want it back,” said Karen Munson, system development coordinator for the Westmoreland Library Network, which covers 23 libraries in the county.
Through the Overdue Book Amnesty Program, libraries are hoping to get back some of the 11,320 books, movies or compact discs that have been missing from library shelves since 2008, Munson said.
Library patrons need to provide donated food with the missing items at the library circulation desk, rather than an outdoor drop-off box, to receive proper credit, Munson said.
