Lexington Public Library now officially fine-free
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Lexington Public Library is officially fine-free.
The library will no longer fine people for late, damaged, or lost library materials.
That announcement came Wednesday after a board meeting vote.
In addition, the library has forgiven all current outstanding fines.
The library says fines affect children and low-income households more than any other groups and that they expect more people to use library services as a result.
