Library Overdue Book Fines Forgiven in AprilRelease Date: 2016-03-29
Our City boasts some of the best municipal libraries in the country, and every resident should have access to the great resources our libraries provide. That’s why for the month of April we are launching a library overdue fines amnesty program. If you have books or library materials that are overdue with fines, return them in April and we will cancel out all fees.
We want our library users who may not be able to afford the fees to regain access to our libraries and services. For many working people and low-income families, these fees are preventing important access to books and education services. I’m proud that we are doing the right thing and helping everyone maintain access to the library.

My thanks to Councilman Roberto Uranga who championed this at the City Council and to our library services team for their hard work in implementing this important initiative.
