We announced back in March that we would soon be implementing a new policy that bars members from carrying a late fee “tab.”
That day is here.
Starting today, our computer database will not allow members to borrow new tools if they owe more than $5 in late fees (just like at the Phila Free Library.) We know this might be a pain, but like a lot of non-profit orgs, our budget is a little tight these days. (Remember: membership & late fees still account for less than 50% of our budget.)
