Start Fresh @ Cleveland Public Library

September is "fine free" with a "no questions asked" amnesty period at Cleveland Public Library. You remove the embarrassment and fear of paying large fines as obstacles to the return of long-overdue materials. Materials returned need to be in good condition; no questions will be asked nor fines charged.

The purpose of the amnesty is to promote the return of needed Library materials, to promote the increased use of the Library, and to prepare patrons for a materials recovery program set to begin in October. The amnesty does not include overdue fines still on record from previously returned materials.

For patrons who owe fines or fees on previously returned materials, we will make it easy for you to START FRESH. Pay 50% of the balance, and the remaining 50% will be waived, with the exception of lost items that belong to other CLEVNET libraries and process fees from other CLEVNET libraries.

For questions about the "Start Fresh" amnesty rules, please contact the Lending Department at Main Library: (216) 623-2872.

Book Cover for The Corrections

Book Discussion Led by Richard Fox
The Corrections
by Jonathan Franzen
Wednesday,September 15, 2010
3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
2121 Euclid Avenue
Rhodes Tower, room 503 (in the Michael Schwartz Library)
Free and open to the general public

Join the Friends of the Library as Richard Fox, Head of the Popular Library at CPL, leads the first book discussion of the fall semester.

Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections has taken the literary scene by storm, from its hilarious portrayal of a dysfunctional American family to its insightful jabs at the rat race of contemporary American life. After almost fifty years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is succumbing to Parkinson's disease and dementia, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. Desperate for some pleasure to look forward to, Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home. Winner of the National Book Award.

Call 216-875-9734 or email to reserve a seat or for more information.
