(KNSI) – In order to encourage young people to read, the Great River Regional Library will no longer collect fines on children and teen materials starting next week.

The library says eliminating fines on kids and teens keeps the library within their reach, always.

Kids and teens will no longer be charged a daily late fee on books, DVDs, CDs and more.

Late notices will be sent out after an item is 10 days overdue.

Lost or damaged items will still need to be replaced and turned over to collections if needed.

The new program doesn’t apply to any fines due before Monday, June 3rd, when the new program starts.

The GRRL says they want all of Central Minnesota’s kids to become lifelong readers and library users.

The library system is based in St. Cloud with branches in 31 locations.
