Durham County and Hamilton Go Fine Free
Durham County Library, Hamilton Public Library
Public libraries continue to make the bold decision to waive overdue fines and late fees in an effort to ensure library access to all patrons during the pandemic. Read the linked announcements below to learn more about these libraries who are now fine free!
Library Director Tammy Baggett-Best said, “We are committed to being an organization that creates equal access to resources. Too often, late fees create barriers for members of our community and keep customers from returning to our libraries.”
Chief Librarian/CEO Paul Takala said, “HPL is your library. Now, everyone can equally access the library. And those who can are invited to pay-it-forward to help others.”
