Friday, February 14, 2020 JOHN JONES 1847 CHRISTIAN ST PHILADELPHIA, PA 19146 Dear JOHN JONES, It's our valentine to the city we love: We've gone fine-free! That's right: The Free Library no longer charges fines for overdue materials. What's more, all existing overdue fines have been removed from patrons' library cards! Overdue fines keep many patrons from enjoying all the Library has to offer, and evidence shows that they have no significant impact on the return rate of checked-out materials. Removing them will bring people and materials back through our doors, creating a more welcoming Free Library for all Philadelphians. Have questions? Read our fine-free FAQ at freelibrary.org/finefree, or give us a call at 215-686-5322. To view your Free Library account status, sign in at freelibrary.org/login. Then grab your library card and check us out - we can't wait to see you at the Fine-Free Library! P.S. Haven't used your online account recently? We can help you find your library card number and your PIN at freelibrary.org/login.
