New li­brary fees, such as charg­ing non-res­i­dent bor­row­ers fees or charg­ing for some best seller ti­tles, will now form part of a re­view and pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion process for the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan. That means no new li­brary fees will be in­tro­duced un­til the fi­nan­cial year begin­ning July 2018. The move comes af­ter the Far North District Coun­cil said it would scrap the an­nual $15 bor­row­ing fee from July 1, mak­ing it free to bor­row books. The re­view is due to be com­pleted in Septem­ber. Res­i­dents can have their say on the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan from March next year.
