Our Fine-Free Policy

As of August 2021, our library is eliminating late fees for all of our borrowable materials, including books, audiobooks, and DVDs! We made the decision to make services more accessible by ensuring that there are no financial penalties for returning items a few days late, by forgiving all existing fines that have been created due to overdue items, and by resetting all cards that been blocked due to overdue fees.

Important highlights of our Fine-Free Policy:

  • Items are still borrowable for a three week loan period with one possible renewal. Even though there are no late fees, we continue to ask our users to respect the borrowing period, as others may be waiting for these items.
  • We will continue to send email notifications to remind users about items that are coming due or overdue.
  • Items that are lost, damaged, or not returned after three months will result in a replacement fee in addition to a $10.00 processing fee. An exception is made for magazine issues, which will only result in a $10.00 processing fee per issue.
  • Fees for items lost, damaged, or not returned cannot be waived by purchasing a replacement copy for the library.
  • Please note that fines that have been created due to items that are lost, damaged, or not returned will be maintained. Accounts that have been blocked due to unpaid fees of this nature will remain blocked until payment of said fees.
