Why get rid of fines?

Fines keep people away from the library. When we started looking at reasons why people didn’t use the library, owing money was consistently mentioned. By removing this barrier, we will help build a stronger community, improve literacy and educational attainment, and bring more people into the library. We want you to be able to enjoy events, access services, and expand your personal curiosity about people, places, and things.
