The Future Is Fine Free: How Libraries Are Increasing Equity, Engagement and Access for Their Communities<https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?id=888&reset=1>
Thursday February 13, 2020 (12:00p PT)
Presenters: Pines and Plains Libraries (CO) Director Tim Miller, Perry County Library (TN)  Director Gail Spragins, Chicago Public Library (IL) Commissioner Andrea Telli and Santa Monica Public Library (CA) Director Patty Wong
Moderator: Meg DePriest, California State Library

Join our presenters as they engage in a big-picture conversation about becoming and being fine-free libraries. During this conversation, they will identify their libraries' "why" for being fine-free, discuss how they strategically addressed their communities' needs and local government priorities by eliminating fines, and describe the impacts of going fine-free on their communities.

While this webinar focuses on the "why" of going fine-free, we know that many people are also interested in the how-to's. For those, we encourage you to check out the Infopeople webinar recording "Eliminating overdue fines: A win-win for your library and community" with Beth Crist, Colorado State Library and Meg DePriest, State Library Consultant at this link: https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?id=873&reset=1

*         Discover books that will grab the attention of reluctant readers, including the newest graphic novels for kids and popular series.
*         Take away a list of helpful websites to use when doing readers' advisory, and sites that will help you keep up-to-date on the latest children's books.
