Long thought to be a useful tool for getting library materials back or a way to generate revenue for the library, we have come to understand that library overdue fines can do more harm than good. Published research and a growing amount of evidence shows that overdue fines disproportionally impact patrons with lower incomes and discourages parents from checking out books for their children. For these reasons, more and more libraries across Idaho are eliminating fines. Join us to discuss going fine-free with representatives from public libraries across Idaho in this live webinar.
This webinar will be recorded for those who cannot attend live.
