Fine-Free FAQs



In our efforts to increase equity of access within our community, Derby Public Library is proud to announce that it has officially gone Fine Free. We will no longer charge overdue fines on most Derby Public Library items.


Will everything be fine-free? What if I have old overdue fines on my account? What if I have fines from another library? What if my privileges from another library in our Bibliomation consortium are suspended? Won't people just check things out and never return them? Don't overdue fines encourage people to return items on time?
