Anne Arundel County will start the new year off with a special gift.

Customers with fines from late returned children's books are getting a break. This will wash away $750,000 in current fines.

Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman and Anne Arundel County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. George Arlotto made the announcement today. 

"So, every child in Anne Arundel County can checkout a book now from the library and going forward we're no longer going to charge fines for kids or parents who are passing out children's books," said Pittman.

This amnesty effects 33,000 customers who have fines from the library.

Anne Arundel County Public Library users received late Christmas presents on Monday as library officials announced they are forgiving past overdue fines for children’s and teen materials and halting any such fines in the future.

The move waived $750,637 in old fines, relieving 33,000 library customers of that burden, about $22 each on average.

AdvertisementLibrary officials were clear this is no free ride. Though fines won’t be charged on children and teen materials the items must be returned to the library or replacement costs will be charged after 30 days. Damaged materials will also bring replacement charges.

“Removing these fines — while still requiring the items be returned — will allow more people to enjoy our materials for education, enrichment and inspiration,” Library CEO Skip Auld said before an audience of Park Elementary pre-schoolers at a ceremony at the Brooklyn Park Library.
