San Mateo Libraries are Now Fine-Free

San Mateo Libraries are Now Fine-Free

Our San Mateo Public Library has joined its Peninsula Library System partners and other libraries across the United States in becoming fine-free! This means you will no longer be charged fees for the late return of most library items (although we still ask you to adhere to due dates to ensure that items are accessible to other members of the community) and existing fees on accounts will be waived. This policy, approved by the San Mateo City Council, is an effort to provide more equitable access to library materials, services, and resources to all members of the community by removing the social inequity that fines can cause.
