Yes--The Mitchell Public Library is no longer charging fines as of April 8th, 2018. This coincides with National Library Week which runs from April 8th through April 14th.
Many libraries from across the country and some in South Dakota have eliminated fines. Owing fines, whether $5.00 or $50.00 can make a patron reluctant to come to the Library.
Libraries want to eliminate that barrier and make the Library accessible to them again.
