Nashville Public Library Announces Fine Amnesty Week August 16-23

If you're like me, you have a tendency to forget things when you get busy. As far as my brain is concerned, certain birthdays, anniversaries and names of distant relatives may as well be coated in olive oil. I doubt you'll be surprised to learn that the balance of overdue fines on my account is pretty stout. That's why I'm excited that Nashville Public Library has announced Fine Amnesty Week August 16-23.

To be eligible to have my overdue fees waived during that period, all I have to do is participate in this year's Summer Challenge, a free-form program designed to encourage everyone (especially kids) to read, write and participate in other mind-expanding activities, like visiting museums (including the awesome Watch Me Move animation exhibit at the Frist!). I just have to register, track the points I earn for each activity, and turn them in at a local library branch before the Summer Challenge ends on August 15.

I'm a little late to the party, but there's no specific point count I have to reach, thanks to the efforts of a ton of busy Library patrons: Since May 1, over 20,000 Summer Challenge participants have collectively logged over 750,000 points, well beyond the 500,000 point threshold set by the Library staff to unlock Fine Amnesty Week. You can visit your local library branch for more details, or learn more about the Summer Challenge and Fine Amnesty Week (and the other prizes available in the program) on the Library's website.

Now, where did I put my library card?
