If you're still hanging on to overdue library books or materials because you're afraid of the fines and other things it could bring, The City Of Killeen is giving you a chance to get squared away. In a press release, the city announced that it is offering an amnesty period for patrons of the library system with overdue materials in exchange for a donation of a pet product to benefit The Killeen Animal Shelter.

Here's more details:

Overdue items must be returned in person to either library location. Participants must present a library card or other identification to verify an account along with one or more pet items, which can include unopened pet food, metal food bowls, liquid dish soap or unused paper towels.
 Amnesty extends to patrons with overdue fees on their accounts from previously returned items. These patrons must visit either library location in person, present identification and donate a pet item to have overdue charges removed. Amnesty does not apply to lost or damaged materials.  Those items must be paid for in full.
The Main Library, located at 205 E. Church Avenue, is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Copper Mountain Branch Library, located at 3000 S. W.S. Young Drive, is open Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
For more information on the amnesty period, please contact the Library at 501-8996.
