Former college students from Nantwich are being given the chance to return borrowed books in a fine-free month campaign.

The library at South Cheshire College is waiving all fines on any items which are returned late until February half term.

New library boss Scott Chesworth (pictured) has introduced the initiative in a bid to retrieve dozens of borrowed books still missing.

Students who return any items outstanding before February 10 will receive a voucher for a free hot drink and cake from the library’s Reading Lounge Café.

The person whose item has been outstanding the longest will receive an Amazon gift voucher to the value of the replacement cost of their item.

Scott said: “We want to give former students an incentive to return books which are overdue to us so they bring them back without having to face a fine.

“Former students still have books they used to help them with their studies and revision over the summer and have overlooked returning them.

“Hopefully, the no fines policy for a month and also the added incentives will ensure that books come back to us so we can update our records.”
