Fines & Fees

Fines & Fees

We are a fine free library! While overdue fines are not charged for being late to return items, your account will be blocked and billed a replacement fee for items that remain overdue for more than 28 days. Special collections may be billed sooner. This applies to library users of all ages. Once overdue materials are returned, replacement fees will be removed from your account. All billing questions should be directed to the Checkout Desk at (269) 329-4544.
