Toronto libraries to charge patrons for not picking up holds (Canada)

People using city libraries are going to start paying fines if they don't pick up holds they've requested. The Toronto Public Library has announced its intention to charge users $1 for every held item they do not pick up, starting July 16. The library currently does not charge its users for not picking up the holds they have requested. Library patrons can avoid incurring the forthcoming fines by either picking up their holds on time, or cancelling them. If patrons are going to be away for a period of time, they can contact the library or go online to suspend their hold requests for the duration of their absence
