Elimination of Library Late Fees @ StFX

The Angus L. Macdonald Library is excited to announce the removal of late fees on all materials and equipment in our collection effective immediately.  Late fees have also been eliminated on items borrowed from the general collections of Novanet member libraries.

The library is pleased to be a part of the Novanet initiative to make general library collections more accessible and equitable and to take it a step further to include all other collections and equipment available at the Angus L. Macdonald Library.

“One of the core values of libraries is providing equal access to information. We recognize library fines pose an equity issue by creating a financial barrier to accessing information. Fines also contribute to student debt.” 

- Suzanne van den Hoogen, Novanet chair.
