Library fines got you down? During Fine Forgiveness Fridays, April 12 – May 10, the Ford Library will waive or credit one fine* each time you interact with us online.

You can get up to seven fines waived total during this event.

It’s easy!

  1. Snap a library-related photo. It could be of a favorite book or place to read, a photo featuring the Ford Library and/or its collections, or just of you in the library.
  2. Post the photo to our Facebook page or to your Instagram/Twitter account with the hashtag #fordlibrary.
  3. Send us an email to let us know you have posted it.

Rules:
All current Duke University students are eligible to participate.
Each photo must be tagged #fordlibrary and posted between April 12th and May 10th, 2019. Your photo(s) may be shared, copied, and used in Ford Library promotional material.
A maximum of seven overdue fine waives total will be allowed per student during the promotion.
*Waives or credits may only be applied to overdue Ford Library fines incurred in the last 6 months (from November 2018 – May 2019).
*Waives or credits will not apply to items that have not yet been returned, for fines that were incurred at other Duke University Libraries, or for recall fines (where another patron was waiting for the overdue item).
