Freedom from fines at HDL!

Herrick District Library is experimenting with something new! During a new pilot program, print material checked out from the children's or teen's sections will not be charged overdue fines. This includes all Herrick District Library-owned children and teen books and magazines, foreign language children and teen print materials, and the children’s readalongs. This six-month pilot program will run through June 30. The library hopes to increase access to print material across our community through this pilot initiative.
