Fine Free: Is it right for your library?

Columbus Metropolitan Library eliminated overdue fines in 2017, becoming one of the first large metropolitan library systems to do so.

Learn about CML’s process of moving to fine free and hear how other tools are being used to help ensure materials are returned in a timely manner. All of this is being presented to help attendees better understand how eliminating overdue fines may play out for their libraries and whether or not it is the right move for them and their customers.
