UB Libraries will waive all fees for overdue books until Dec. 18

The Amnesty Campaign is part of an effort to regain over 3,000 outstanding materials


Time is running out to return overdue library books without facing a fee.

The UB Libraries announced a month-long campaign that began on Nov. 17 to encourage UB and Buffalo community members to return their overdue library books.

In exchange for returning books during this window of time, UB Libraries will waive all fees, according to UB Now.

Books and materials can be returned at the circulation desk of any of UB’s six libraries. The Amnesty Campaign is underway as the UB Libraries prepare to transfer more than 4.2 million printed materials to a new database.

Nearly 3,000 of those books and materials are overdue. UB Libraries hopes its amnesty initiative will keep more accurate materials by collecting or removing lost books from their system.
