No more fines for overdue books at SLO County libraries

Posted at 11:08 AM, Jan 22, 2019

As of February, San Luis Obispo County Libraries will no longer charge fines for overdue materials returned to the libraries.

If requested, any past overdue fines will also be removed from a person’s account. This does not affect fines for lost or damaged items.

“We want to get library materials into as many peoples’ hands as possible, and overdue fines create a barrier to access,” said Library Director Chris Barnickel.

For more information, call or visit your local library branch. A directory of branches can be found at
