The City of Tolleson City Council approved an action to eliminate all late fines at the Tolleson Public Library. Any items that are late can be returned to the Tolleson City Library without late fees attached to them.
Mayor Anna Tovar stated: "Simply entering our library exposes community members to information they would not otherwise encounter. Many people within our community face barriers, which are hard to overcome. To promote social equality within our community, we are proud to be the first small city library in the West Valley to eliminate library late fines. Tolleson Public Library is a place where free and open access to a whole new world of resources is offered equitably."
