Library Pilot Program Eliminates Fines From Certain Materials

 

In an effort to remove reading barriers, increase childhood literacy, and improve library access, the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library has created a pilot program to eliminate late fees on certain items.

 

Effectively immediately, overdue fines will not accrue on books classified as juvenile, junior high, or young adult, no matter what the age of the person checking out the materials.

 

“To be clear, this is for books only,” said Lisa Fipps, Director of Marketing. “So late fees for items such as movies or CDs still apply. We’re making it a pilot program because we need to gauge the success and cost because there will be a loss of revenue.”

 

Patrons will still be billed for items that are not renewed or returned within three weeks after the due date.
