HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The Board of Trustees for the Free Public Library of Hasbrouck Heights unanimously voted to end amnesty for late fines for children and teens on Thursday, October 1 at its September meeting, which was held virtually.
According to Mimi Hui, Library Director, many of the books and materials were left in the desks and lockers of children during the school shutdown in mid-March. The deadline was originally September 1, but the parents will now have a "last shot to clear up" their accounts," she said.
Hui noted that the amnesty only applies to child and teens for materials from the Hasbrouck Heights Library. Late fees for materials from other libraries won't be waived. She also said that materials and books that are lost must be replaced.
Parents have received notices by email, if one is on file, or by letters to the home.
