Fine Free for Frankston City Libraries
Frankston City Libraries have recently gone fine free. This move in abolishing fees for late returns will ensure that all residents have access to essential library services, including resources to assist in job seeking and schooling. The library service, which includes branches in Frankston, Seaford and Carrum Downs, has also waived existing fines. They’re looking forward to seeing more life-long learners back in the library.
