Library fines abolished

October 31, 2019

We've learned that if you get an overdue book fine at your local library, the chance of you ever coming back to a library greatly decreases. 😔

So as of today, all Libraries ACT overdue fines are GONE! Any fine you've got has been extinguished! And fines will never be charged again! 😃

Instead of the current system of charging 25 cents a day for overdue items, Libraries ACT will instead opt for temporary suspension of library privileges until the overdue items are returned or renewed. 📖

While the popular ‘food for fines’ drives will no longer take place, ACT Libraries will still undertake a food drive for charity in December 👍
