Fines & Fees

Fines and fees may be assessed for any item that is not returned by the due date. Fees may also be assessed for damaged or lost items. Fines of $4.00 or more will result in a patron’s account being locked, preventing further check out of materials, and access to computer resources. Fines may be paid in person by cash or check or online using a credit/debit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover are all accepted). *The ability to carry a balance is a courtesy not a right.
