ST. CHARLES – The Kane County Circuit Clerk’s Office, in conjunction with other law partners, will host two expungement clinics next month, according to a news release.
One clinic will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon Sept. 17 at the Gail Borden Public Library, 270 N. Grove Ave., Elgin. The other clinic will be from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Sept. 24 at the Aurora Public Library, 101 S. River St., Aurora.

The Circuit Clerk’s office will have informational packets along with volunteers to assist in filling out the forms.
A link to statewide forms is available on the Kane County Circuit Clerk’s website, cic.countyofkane.org.
