Newcomerstown Public Library will be having a fine forgiveness week as a celebration of National Library Week, April 11-15.

They want to encourage patrons to return any overdue or lost library materials and receive a fresh start. In addition, patrons who already have unpaid fines can receive 50 percent reduction on what they owe if paid in full during this week.

Also, they will be having a "Favorite Books Contest" where people can share how a book has affected them and have a chance to win a "Create Your Own Story" prize basket provided by Friends of the Library.
