Cleveland Public Library's 'Fresh Start' Fine-Forgiveness Program

    The two parts of the program
  • Patrons can return overdue books and materials to any branch between September 1 and September 30 free of fines, no questions asked. 
  • Patrons owing fines on previously returned materials can pay 50% of the balance and the remaining 50% will be forgiven. 

    Why the program was initiated.
  • The goal of this initiative is to promote the return of much needed library materials and to prepare patrons for a materials recovery program that is set to begin in October. 
  • The materials recovery program is being adopted as a way to recover lost materials that perhaps could not be replaced due to drastic budget cuts within the library
