For one time only, on October 19, 2017, we are clearing ALL fines on ALL kids’ and teens’ (17 years and under) library cards.*
Libraries help kids and teens succeed in school. That’s why NYC libraries are pleased to announce a one-time fine amnesty. So visit Queens Library today! Borrow books, participate in programs and have fun. We welcome you.
* Please note: Items due after October 19 will continue to accrue fines. Fines for ages 17 and under will be automatically cleared. High school students ages 18 and up can have their fines cleared in person through November 2, 2017.
KNOW YOUR DUE DATES Keep a list of due dates on your refrigerator or write them on a calendar. You can find your due dates on your receipt or by logging into your account online.
KEEP BOOKS IN A SPECIAL PLACE Pick a spot at home to keep your library books, like in a tote bag or on a shelf, so you always know what you have checked out.
HOW TO RENEW Ask a librarian, use self-check machines, or log into your account to extend your due date. You can also renew over the phone by calling 718-990-8508.
RETURNING Bringing back your materials is easy because you can return them to ANY library location in Queens: queenslibrary.org
READ DOWN YOUR FEES Young Queens Library customers can also take advantage of Read Down Your Fees, an ongoing fine forgiveness program that enables young people to reduce their fines by reading in the library. Learn More.
