Norfolk libraries to scrap late fees for children

The Norfolk Libraries and Information service have put forward ambitious plans to improve children and young people’s reading skills which have been diminished nationally as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The proposals, to be considered at the Council’s cabinet on 8 March, include the removal of overdue charges for everyone under the age of 16, universal membership of the county’s e-library through Norfolk’s schools and the introduction of a new ‘1000 books before school’ reading challenge.
