All existing loans on books have been extended to July 2020 to stop people from accruing fines on books they could not return while self-isolating, or because libraries have been closed.
However, many people will have historic fines for overdue books on their library accounts. Bosses say a new change rolled out on Friday, June 4, means book-lovers can clear any charges accrued on their accounts without needing to visit a library. This can be done online by logging into a Suffolk Libraries account and selecting the option to resolve fines.
