Libraries should strive for inclusion and be welcoming spaces for the hugely diverse range of patrons they serve.
Fining patrons is in direct contrast to the concept of inclusion and equity in access to information for all patrons. It is in contrast to the very core values of librarians and library workers.
We are committed to removing library fines and advocating for the cessation of fines in the first instance.
Join us by using the resources on this website to build a business case, or write to your council, or to become more informed in order to advocate for the removal of library fines.
