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 slolibrary.org.
