Book Amnesty in BaNES

Bath and North East Somerset has announced a ‘No questions asked’ Book Amnesty.
People in Bath and North East Somerset who hold very overdue library books are being invited to bring them back without penalty and enjoy their local library once more.

The council removed fines for the late return of books in April 2019 but is now inviting anyone who still has books borrowed before that date to return them from 6 January as part of a book amnesty.

Books can be returned to core libraries in Bath, Keynsham and Midsomer Norton or at one of the community-run libraries and old fines will be deleted.

People who think they have lost a very overdue book should talk to library staff who can remove it, and any fines, from their account and people will then be able to use the libraries as normal.’
