DeKalb County Public Library (DCPL) is waiving overdue fines for materials in the children’s and teens’ collections during “Fine-Free Summer.” The initiative runs June 1 to Aug. 31 and is designed to encourage reading and remove any barriers so children will read more during the summer months.


The DCPL Board of Trustees approved Fine-Free Summer for the second year after a successful summer in 2018.

Fees will still be assessed on lost or damaged items and normal checkout periods will still apply.
