“Spot” a second chance by returning your library books during Amnesty Month at MPL! During the month of April, McAllen Public Library will run a month-long drive to get overdue books, CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Rays back on our shelves.

Any overdue McAllen Public Library item that is returned from April 1st to April 30th will have its fines removed from a patron’s account. Items may be returned at any of MPL’s three locations, and any item returned qualifies, no matter how overdue. Amnesty applies to currently checked-out items.

“Amnesty Month has two goals: returning overdue items to our shelves and welcoming people back to the library who have stayed away due to fines,” said Library Director Kate Horan. “If the Library reaches its goal to have 1,000 items returned, MPL staff system-wide will wear polka dots to celebrate.”
