No More Library Late Fees

Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – The city has decided to stop fining library users who are late bringing their books back.

Starting tomorrow, January 1st, overdue fees will be no more.

Libraries will also clear all existing fines from users’ accounts.

The city says fines create a negative experience and discourage people from using libraries.

Late notices will still go out and eventually there will be a replacement charge if a book isn’t returned.
