YPRL is now fine free

Yarra Plenty Regional Library’s Board has voted to remove all library fines in order to encourage more community members to borrow books without fear of financial penalty.

That’s right – from today, items borrowed from Yarra Plenty Regional Library will no longer attract overdue fines if returned late.

YPRL believes that the majority of borrowers will continue to return their books on time, even without the fear of fines. (We thank you in advance!)

Charges will still apply for lost and damaged items.

Still have fines?

If you have any fines on your card now, YPRL wants you to come back to borrowing at the library!

Across July, we are offering members with fines the opportunity to wipe the slate clean with Food for Fines. We will waive all fines for anyone who returns their books and donates to our food drive.

Find out more about clearing your fines here.

Happy borrowing!

YPRL’s extensive collection of over 350,000 items includes books, DVDs, audiobooks, CDs, games, comic books, LOTE items and technology from the Learning Library.

We also have an eLibrary with eBooks, audiobooks, eMagazines & more.

All fine free. Happy borrowing!
