We are excited to announce that for the rest of 2020, there will be NO overdue fines! Plus, any existing fines will be put on hold until 2021. So, you don’t need to worry about them for now.

If you currently owe more than $10 in fines & fees and your access has been limited, you can once again borrow, renew or place holds on your library account, effective immediately.
