The South Huntington Public Library has decided to eliminate late fees on most borrowed materials, effective April 1.
Late fees will be imposed only on equipment, such as laptops and hotspots, and museum passes.
“By going fine free, the library can more fully pursue its mission to foster connections, satisfy curiosity and inspire creativity without financial barriers; the library is for everyone,” the library said in announcing the decision.
Items borrowed from other libraries may still incur late fees.
When the Covid-19 epidemic hit last year, the library began waiving late fees.
