NALIS members given amnesty on overdue books and DVDs

If you have an overdue book for the National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS) and are wondering about your fines and fees, given the temporary suspension of walk-in library services, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

NALIS has announced an amnesty on all overdue books and DVDs for April 30-June 30.

This means that books and DVDs borrowed from public libraries with a due date during that period will not accrue overdue fines and fees.

NALIS hopes that its walk-in services, delivered by its Heritage and Public Libraries, will resume on May 24 (unless otherwise advised by the Government).
In the interim, NALIS stated via a release, that its online platforms will continue to be a great resource for information, e-books, e-magazines, school related content, activities and programmes.

Visit and Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to learn more.

Those who want to join the library can register via the NALIS website at

People desirous of returning materials can drop them off in the book-return bins at the National Library, Port of Spain.
