Will it take longer to fulfill holds?

So far, we have not seen a change in our circulation statistics as a result of eliminating fines. The number of reminders we send out for books that are 60 to 90 days late has not changed. The number of adult AV items specifically that become “Lost” each week has not changed. This data affirms our belief that holds will continue to be fulfilled in a timely manner and our collection will remain robust.
