Tolleson Public Library has adopted a new “No Late Fines” policy. Tolleson Public Library has waived all existing late fines and has discontinued the practice of applying overdue fines to items returned late.
Studies have shown that overdue fines on library materials have no impact on ensuring that materials are returned on time. What research has shown is that lower income households (which are less likely to have books in the home and have a higher risk of lower literacy skills) are disproportionately affected by overdue fines and are more likely to have blocked library accounts. The potential of accruing a balance of overdue fines can also prevent some customers from checking out books and other materials from Tolleson Public Library.
We are committed to making our library as accessible as possible to those that need it most and want to: 1) bring back library users whose library accounts are blocked due to unpaid overdue fines; and 2) encourage more people to sign up for a library card and use library materials without the fear of incurring overdue fines they cannot afford to pay.
No. Customers are still expected to return materials, preferably on time. We are still following our reminder schedule. When items are 50 days past due, we will charge the account holder a replacement fee for the item.
As of December 16, 2019 the Not Late Fines policy has been in effect.
We will continue our practice of charging customers the original replacement cost of the item, plus a $2 processing fee.
No. Our new No Late Fines policy will forgive all library accounts.
