LUBBOCK, Texas — On Monday, the Lubbock Public Library announced upcoming plans to eliminate overdue fines for books, audiobooks and magazines.

“We are so excited to announce that Lubbock Public Library will be going fine free on October 1,” a social media post stated.

Library patrons who have accrued fines for these items will have them removed from their accounts.

“You will still be charged overdue fines for other items in our collection like DVDs and technology devices, and you will also be responsible for lost/damaged charges,” the library’s website stated.
