Amnesty for Fraser Coast library members with fines owing

FRASER Coast libraries are set to provide a reprieve and wipe all outstanding late fees for card-holding members.

The council has made the offer as part of celebrations for National Library and Information Week from May 20 to 26.

Councillor for community, heritage and family services George Seymour encouraged all library members with fines owing to take advantage of the amnesty period.

"Anyone with fines can have them wiped and they can start borrowing again," Cr Seymour said.

"It's that simple."

The council is also extending opening hours on Tuesdays at the Maryborough Library to help celebrate National Library and Information Week.

The changes will take place from Monday.
