Library amnesty

 

We know you have had a tough year, and recognise that fines may add to your stress, so we are removing them now and into the future so you can breathe a little easier.

From 19 October you will no longer accumulate fines for overdue loans, only a $130 replacement cost on Library items which are lost or damaged.

If you have any outstanding overdue Library items, please return them to your nearest Library and we will remove all associated fines. We will also remove outstanding fines on Library items you have previously returned late. 

You can find our more information here about overdue and lost library loans.
