The initiative will run from June 1 to Aug. 31 and is designed to encourage reading and remove any barriers so kids and teens will read more during the summer months.

The DCPL Board of Trustees approved Fine-Free Summer for the second year after a successful summer in 2018. 

Fees will still be assessed on lost or damaged items and normal checkout periods will still apply.
