Overdues happen; we all have been there! There's always that book that fell down between the car seats, or was accidentally pushed under your son's bed, or maybe you just forgot about that bestseller that got hidden under last week's magazines. We all have had some overdue fines in our lives.
We regret to inform you that our library has decided that we need to increase our fine schedule. This is the first time we have increased fines in several years.
The first step of our projected fine increase takes effect on September 1, 2017:
Children's book fines will increase from 2 cents to 5 cents each day
Adult book fines will increase from 5 cents to 15 cents per day.
DVD fines will remain 50 cents per day and Museum Pass fines remain $5.00 per day
Seniors will continue to pay no fines on either children's or adult books.
Time is running out to take advantage of the old rate of fines! Return those overdue items as soon as you can!
