How much are late fines?

The library does not charge late fines. Patrons who have overdue items may not check out until the overdue items are renewed or returned. Items may be renewed twice unless they are requested by another patron.

You will be given a receipt with a list of due dates when you check out. We offer pre-overdue notices via text message or e-mail, and overdue notices via text message, e-mail, or standard mail. These are courtesy notices and you are responsible for knowing when your materials are due. You can check the status of your account anytime by logging into the catalog with your library card number. Items returned on their due date after the library closes are considered returned on time. 

If the charges on your library account are $25 or more, and there is no response to our overdue notices, your account may be sent to a collection service. A $10 fee will be assessed to your account if it is turned over to the collection service.

We will ask for replacement costs for any items that are lost or damaged while checked out. If you pay for a lost item, find it, and return it in good condition within six months, we will refund your payment. We do not accept replacement items.

We accept payment in the forms of cash, check, credit, or debit card. You may pay over the phone by calling the main desk at 308-233-3282 during library hours or you can pay online by signing into your account.
