Say Goodbye to Processing Fees

Did you know? Processing fees are now gone!

As of January, processing fees will not be charged for overdue items. Although we have not charged daily late fines for years, patrons were charged an $8 fee for extremely overdue items. Removing these fees makes library resources more accessible to our community. Countywide, more than 7,000 residents will have processing fees removed from their accounts.

Patrons with overdue items will owe the replacement cost of the material unless returned.

Don’t want to worry about overdue items? As always, e-materials are easy to access and will never be overdue.
