Durham County Library joins Wake, Chapel Hill systems and goes fine free
Durham County Library is now fine free and will no longer charge patrons for overdue library materials.Posted — Updated
In Durham County, library users will still have to pay for lost or damaged items, including a $5 processing fee, but there will be no fines for items returned late.
“It has long been a goal of our libraries to go fine free. We are committed to being an organization that creates equal access to resources," said Durham County Library Director Tammy Baggett-Best in a press release. "Too often late fees create barriers for members of our community and keep customers from returning to our libraries. We want Durham County residents to know everyone’s welcome at the library.”
