From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:30 pm on 17 November 2020

Upper Hutt libraries have ditched late fees for overdue books.

The council officially signed off on the change last week saying it believes the move will enable their communities to access the libraries' resources without financial concerns.

Upper Hutt libraries manager Marion Read joins Jesse to explain why they decided to go fine-free.
