Tulsa County -

The Tulsa City-County Library is going fine free.

So, if you have a fine on your account, it will be forgiven.

Library items that are damaged, or lost, will still be charged to your account.

“Moving our library system to a Fine Free model really speaks to TCCL’s commitment to equitable and accessible service. It’s a direction we’ve been moving toward steadily over the years and it highlights the importance we place on making sure our customers can enjoy books, movies, music and all our services without preventative barriers like late fines. We know that accumulated overdue fines prevent some customers from using our services. It’s more important to us that items are returned, than it is to build up late fines that might prevent a customer from using their library,” says TCCL CEO, Kimberly Johnson.
