No More Fines and Fine Forgiveness

We are no longer charging fines for overdue library materials. Instead, once items are overdue, you will need to bring them back before being able to check out more materials. Additionally, we have forgiven existing fines for materials that were returned late.* So, if you haven't been coming to the library because you were blocked, we would love to see you back. 

Beginning May 15, accounts with any one item that is two weeks or more overdue or a minimum of 3 total overdue items will not be able to check out additional materials until those materials are returned. If the materials are lost or damaged, they would need to be paid for in order to restore borrowing privileges. 

*Charges for unreturned or damaged items will still need to be paid. However, if you have undamaged long overdue library materials, bring them back and you can resume using the library.
