Library's amnesty brings patrons back into the fold

By LAUREL BLACK lblack@paducahsun.com

The McCracken County Public Library's 15-day amnesty campaign brought some 275 patrons back into the fold -- and thousands of materials back to the library.

The campaign successfully raised the visibility of the library, created opportunities for it to engage with patrons and garnered a larger number of returns than usual, Library Director Susan Baier said.

The amnesty event, which allowed patrons to return materials without facing fines, no matter how long overdue, resulted in at least 275 patrons having their blocked cards reinstated.

A total of 23,605 items were returned between April 1 and 15 -- 1,285 more than were returned in the preceding two-week period, Baier said.

The oldest items returned -- a pair of books about twins -- had been checked out more than 30 years ago. Of the returns, 604 items had been overdue for more than 28 days and were considered lost, Baier added.
