BPL waives fines for all youth and teens
To encourage students to come back to the libraries, the Boston Public Library has waived all fines and lost book charges for all youth and teen cardholders. Through the "New Start" program -- the largest amnesty program ever offered by the BPL -- more than 50,000 youth who currently have outstanding fines or lost items on their library accounts will have them automatically removed from their records.
