Overdue Fines Reinstated, Effective March 1, 2021

Starting Monday, March 1, 2021, we will be reinstating fines for overdue materials.  This means any item returned after March 1 that is late will be assessed our standard overdue fees.  If the item was checked out from or transferred to us from another branch, that specific branch’s overdue fees will apply instead.  ALL ITEMS MUST STILL BE RETURNED IN THE OUTSIDE DROP BOX BEHIND THE BUILDING.  Items might then take up to four (4) days to be processed and removed from your account.  PLEASE NOTE you will not be charged for the additional four-day period.

*Patrons with fees or charges of $5.00 or more on their accounts will need to pay them down below the $5.00 mark to continue using digital services or to check out any physical items.

Please contact us if you have any questions or need additional information.
