Fines & Fees

Late Fines

Yes, we still collect library fines….but don’t stress it, they really aren’t that scary. These fines are here to remind you that the longer you have a library item, the more the chance is that you are denying someone else the chance to make use of it.

  • Books and Audiobook fines are $0.05 per day.
  • DVD and Blu-ray fines are $0.50 per day.
  • Interlibrary Loan fines are $1.00 per day (this is stricter because when you check out an Interlibrary Loan you are checking out a book that doesn’t belong to our library).
  • Library of Things fines are $1.00 per day (due to the expense of most of the items).

    Replacement Fees

    We know that things happen. Toddlers find sharpies and treat library books like coloring books, puppies hide under your bed and eat items, DVDs get broken, books get left on top of cars or on airplanes, and coffee and other beverages get spilled. We aren’t mean about these things, because it happens to all of us. However, it is a part of the agreement that you signed in order to get a library card that you would happily pay a replacement price for anything that gets damaged while in your care.

  • Charges for lost or damaged items will be billed at the system price plus a $5.00 processing fee.
