Can Your Fines and Read Off Your Fines

Several times a year, we forgive fines during our Can Your Fines and Read Off Your Fines programs. Check our events calendar for dates and more information.

Lost Items

If you don’t return the library material within 45 days of its due date, the item will be considered lost. At that time, your account will be billed a processing fee and replacement cost. If this bill is not paid, or the material returned, within ten days (i.e. 55 days past the due date), your account may be forwarded to a collection agency.

Blocked Accounts

If you owe $10.00 or more, your account will be blocked. Each time you pay 10% of the outstanding balance, you may borrow two items. However, to check out WiFi hotspots or other maker kits that can be taken home, your account must be below $10.00.
