Security Public Library Goes "Fine Free

 

January 23, 2019



It is the mission of the Library to provide equal access to information, services, and opportunities that inform, connect, engage, and empower all users. Fines are a barrier to that access. Eliminating that barrier opens doors to all in our community to utilize the resources that the Library offers. Customer accounts are blocked from further checkout when one or more items reach 14 days overdue. Your account will be unblocked if you just get those overdue items back ASAP! You won’t be charged overdue fines for late returns. Keep in mind though that items are considered LOST on the 45th day overdue and you will be billed replacement FEES for those items at that point. Accounts are referred to collections on the 55th day overdue. At that point, a non-negotiable $10 fee is assessed to cover costs we incur pursuing collection action. Borrowing privileges may be curtailed for customers who are habitually late returning library items.

Customers with fines accrued on their accounts prior to Dec. 31, will need to visit the Library and speak with a staff member at the service desk about their balance. Bring late items with you.

Questions? Call 391-3196 or visit us at the library.
