To Fine Or Not To Fine...That Is The Question!

Join us on Thursday, October 17 for a meeting of the Social Justice Roundtable to discuss materials fines.  Have you eliminated them?  Do you want to?  Are you a municipal Library and have been told you can not?  Let's discuss philosophy, policy, and practicality.
