FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Public Library is celebrating going fine free with cake.

To kick-off September, the library will hold a fine free celebration at the main library and the Christa McAuliffe Library on Thursday, September 1 from 3 to 7 p.m.

Just because the library is fine free does not mean you can hold on to that book, movie or CD forever.

Replacement fees may still apply to lost or damaged items, but as long as the item is returned undamaged, fees are waved, said Library Director Lena Kilburn.

And if you borrow a book or item from the Minuteman Library Network, that library may charge a fee, if not returned on time. Ashland Public Library, part of the Minuteman Network, is fine free, too.

The elected Framingham Library Trustees voted in May to go fine free.

That same month, Mayor Charlie Sisitsky said he supported the measure.

So if you have some overdue library books or other items, bring them back to the library on September 1, and have a piece of cake.
