Contra Costa: County Library clears outstanding fines for all patrons

From Richmond Standard

“As promised, the Contra Costa County Library system started off the New Year by clearing outstanding fines on all library accounts.Last month, the Library announced its plan to eliminate fines for overdue books and materials and to bring all library cards into good standing. Patrons previously blocked from library services are now able to check out books, magazines and DVDs and use all online services.Library officials hope the decision will attract back patrons who have been avoiding the Library due to the fines. Last month, about 118,450 of the more than 650,000 cardholders in the county, or 18 percent, had blocked library cards.”
