Chicago Public Library Amnesty Ends Friday

Chicago Public Library's Amnesty Period ends this Friday September 7. Turn in overdue books, no questions asked, with no late fees attached. Even if you've had a book for years, it's ok. This initiative lead a woman to bring back a copy of The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, which she had for 78 years. So don't fret, make use of this opportunity while you can.
