Chapel Hill Public Library announces it will no longer charge late fines

Chapel Hill Public Library will no longer charge users overdue fines for late items. Under the new policy, users will receive a series of reminders to return the materials before receiving a bill for replacement costs and losing their ability to check out other items. Their ability will be restored once the items are returned or paid for. Town leaders said late fines had a disproportionate impact on “low-income and traditionally marginalized populations.”

Chapel Hill's drive-thru food distribution adapts in the wake of COVID-19

To continue to serve the local community through the pandemic, the Town and the Food Bank have collaborated with PORCH, a hunger relief organization in the Chapel Hill and Carrboro area that is familiar with large-scale distribution and volunteer recruitment.
