Youngsters will no longer have to pay the price for overdue books at the Beverly Hills Public Library thanks to a recent decision to eliminate fines on materials checked out by youth under 18 years old.
“We have found that overdue fines prevent young patrons from checking out books and other materials and we are here to encourage people to use library services, not obstruct them from doing so,” said Library Administrator Karen Buth. “We want our materials to be returned on time but understand that children are not able to come to the library without their caregivers, and we hope this new policy provides the flexibility they need.”
