HURON — Effective Feb. 1, the Huron Public Library went fine-free!
What does this mean for library patrons? From that date onward, library patrons can enjoy the freedom of borrowing materials without the worry of incurring overdue fines. This proactive measure aligns with the library’s vision of creating a more accessible and welcoming space for the community. It’s an exciting development that aims to remove financial barriers and encourage increased use of the library’s resources.
However, patrons must be aware that while overdue fines are being eliminated, a replacement fee will still apply to items that are not returned or are returned damaged. This is a necessary measure to ensure the continued availability and quality of the library’s resources. The library is eager to cultivate a more inclusive atmosphere while continuing to foster a passion for reading and learning throughout the community.
