What's Happening


We’re Going Fine Free!
How and Why?

Why will the library no longer collect overdue fines?
Our goal is to make sure you can enjoy all the books and services the library has to
offer. Overdue fines can prevent some patrons from checking out books and other
materials from the library. The library wants to unblock accounts and encourage you to
bring items back.
