It’s been in the works, now it’s official—Mendocino County Libraries are FINE FREE!
“Fines often deter people from coming back to the library or cause them to take decades-long gaps. Sometimes people just forget to return on time and it builds up. If the person’s household changes, books can be hard to retrieve or left at Grandma’s. We want to keep people coming (access) through all life’s upheavals–pandemics included”.—Dan Hess, Branch Manager, Fort Bragg Library
