Like many of its visitors, we visit to the Main Library only to shower in the sink. Others, however, still use the place to check out books. But some fear returning because of overdue library books and punitive costs. Well, fear no more, book lovers. The SF Public Library started a two-week amnesty period this week, where you can return your book and other library material without penalty or fine to restore your borrowing privileges. You can return your items to any SF library starting today up until May 16. Read more about it at The last time the SF Public Library had an amnesty program was way back in 2001, which saw more than 5,000 items returned. Oh yeah, items can only be returned if they are in good condition.
