The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library is dropping overdue fines.
The library system’s board of trustees approved the new policy, effective September 1st.
In a news release, the EVPL said fines can create a barrier to service, especially for young people and residents with financial hardships.
Officials say the policy change will NOT change due dates.
Patrons will receive an overdue notice about 2 days after the due date and again 14 days later.
If an item is not returned within 30 days, you’ll be charged the cost to replace the item.
