Monroe County Public Library Board Of Trustees To Vote On Dropping Overdue Fines

library books

(WFIU/WTIU News)

The Monroe County Public Library may soon do away with fees for late-returns.

MCPL Board of Trustee members will meet tomorrow night and vote on the matter at the Ellettsville Library Branch.

The proposal was first brought to table during an MCPL Board of Trustees work session last week.

Motivations for switching to a fine-free late return system included making the library more accessible and the large amount of time it takes for staff to explain to the current fine system to customers.

If the proposal passes, there would be a soft roll-out and official implementation would start at the beginning of March, with all patron accounts fine-free.

You can read more about the proposal in their work session packet.  

This story will be updated tomorrow night after the MCPL Board of Trustees votes.
