Jefferson-Madison Regional Library Offers a Fresh Start for the New Year

Posted: Updated:

Charlottesville kids and teens who owe fines for overdue books can start the New Year with a clean slate. The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library is launching a new program called ‘Project Fresh start.'

City funds will allow Charlottesville library users under the age of 18 to clear their record of all fines and fees over the holiday break from school.

JMRL's circulation manager David Plunkett stated, "This is really a one-time opportunity to have access to all of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library's resources again. If you've had a card or if you're a parent of a kid who's had a card blocked this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. The city is taking care of these fines."

In total, 1,244 Charlottesville kids have blocked library cards due to overdue fees and fines. The library is sending them golden tickets for the fresh start deal, which runs from December 22 to January 6.
