Peterborough Libraries are hoping to both recover the books and encourage people to return to the libraries. Library services manager Firzana Shaheen says that “following the pandemic, the number of library users has reduced significantly…in part due to people being worried about owing the library service money.” Library users who have lost books can also have their fines waived and accounts reset.
