Fines Amnesty From January 1-January 31, 2003

Start 2003 right! Return all of your overdue Himmelfarb Library materials and pay no fines! Help keep the Library's collection intact and available for your colleagues.

From January 1 until January 31, 2003, an amnesty will be in effect for all overdue Himmelfarb Library materials. No fines will be collected but we do ask that you drop a can of food for a local shelter into the box next to the Circulation Desk. To return your books and clear your records, you need to speak to either Yaser Mushtaq, Circulation Manager, or Keturah Solomon, Evening Manager, in person.

Once the amnesty period is over, the Library will return to its standard policies for applying and collecting fines. Go to: /services/borrowing.cfm to review Himmelfarb policies and procedures. To check your own patron record, go to the Himmelfarb home page (, click on "Catalog & Reserves", and select the "User Services" option. Please note that the process for notifying patrons of overdues and fines has been streamlined so that patrons will receive more timely reminders beginning in February 2003.

Best wishes for a successful year!

Anne Linton, Director, Library Services
