MPL Eliminates Fines for Children: 07/18/2019

Kaelyn.jpgThe mission of the Minot Public Library is to connect, enrich and inspire. To that end, the staff and Board of the Library believe library services are particularly essential to the youth of the Minot community. Therefore, the Minot Public Library Board has decided that effective July 1, 2019, children will no longer accrue fines for overdue materials.

“We do not believe children should be restricted from using Library services because of situations they can’t always control,” said Library Board Vice President Kari Kvigne. Kvigne went on to explain children are not usually responsible for getting themselves to the Library to return items, yet they are then unable to check out materials.
