A library fines blog post provides information about data for this project.
Data was collected in July 2022. The child and adult fine amounts were added to a publicly available spreadsheet. If you want to make any changes please email Libraries Hacked.
The adult fine is the fine someone aged 18 or over would receive for returning a fiction book late. The child fine is the fine someone who is under-18 would receive for returning a fiction book late (not specifically child fiction items). The family fine is an estimate of the fine that a family of 4 would receive for returning their books a week late, assuming 1 book each.
The data is free to reuse, and released under a CC Zero Licence.
Please wait while data loads...
