As of July 1, four additional ULC libraries have joined the
Fine Free movement
and reduced access barriers by eliminating overdue materials fines.
Read the linked announcements below to learn more about these ULC member libraries who are now fine free.
“Every member of our community has a right to library services and library fines and fees are known barriers to use,” said Director Diane Kresh.
“This change will help Multnomah County Library truly serve its community in a free and equal way," said Director of Libraries Vailey Oehlke.
“The goals of this program are to get the cards unblocked, we want to get people’s access back to use the library, we want to get our materials back,” said Library Director Kira Peters.
“Moving our library system to a fine free model really speaks to TCCL’s commitment to equitable and accessible service,” said CEO Kimberly Johnson.
