Will everything be fine-free?

“Fine free” means that there will be no late charges on most materials (due to a limited supply and a time-sensitive nature, late charges will still be charged on Museum Passes, Rapid Reads, Express DVDs, and Technology Equipment) checked out at either branch of the Granby Public Library. We want to ensure that all citizens of our town have access to our resources in the most equitable way possible.
