Amnesty For Little Book Lovers: New York City Libraries Shelve Kids’ Late Fees

The Brooklyn Public Library, Queens Public Library and New York Public Library are offering unconditional amnesty to everyone age 17 and under who has been charged with late fees for one day only, to reopen the library to kids blocked by high fees.

On Thursday, the city’s public library systems are forgiving fines on overdue materials checked out by readers age 17 and under, reopening library doors to young readers once blocked by unpaid fees.
