As of October 1, Worthington Libraries will no longer charge fines for overdue materials.
Library director Chuck Gibson explains the reason for the policy change:
"Many people believe fines make up a large portion of the library's annual revenue, but that is not the case. Eliminating the collection of fines will not have a significant impact on the library's budget, but it will lessen the financial burden on library patrons, especially those who need our services the most. That is why the library board unanimously voted to make this change at its August meeting."
