Amnesty Week at the Library!

Have library fines?  Fear not!  During the week of Exam Cram (December 4th – 10th), the GRCC Library will waive your fines upon request.  Just come to the Circulation desk sometime during the week, ask to have your fines forgiven, and voila–they’ll be gone!  *Please note that this courtesy only applies to fines for overdue items that have been returned.

Don’t forget–FREE refreshments will be provided all week long, as well as expanded tutoring services and extended hours on the weekend prior to exams.

See you soon!
