Fines and Fees

(Approved 3/05/07)

These standard fines for the North Freedom Public Library will be applied to all accounts for each item that is returned late.  The fines accumulate on a daily basis that the library is open.  The fines are as follows:

Material Fine
Books .05 per day, max fine of 3.00
VHS/DVD .50 per day, max fine of 3.00
CD’s  .05 per day, max fine of 3.00
Books on cassette and CD’s  .05 per day, max fine of 3.00
Software 1.00 per day, max fine of 3.00
Magazines .05 per day, max fine of 3.00
E-Books 1.00 per day, max fine of 5.00

A “lost book” fee will be charged to an account when the item has not been returned for 1 month.  This fee is calculated by the owning library based on the cost of the item lost.

A “Damaged/ Parts Missing” fee may be added to an account when an item is found to have been returned damaged, or without all the parts of the item.  The fee for the parts missing can be removed if the parts are returned in good condition.

A “Charges- Miscellaneous” fee can be added for unforeseen problems, these will be dealt with on a case to case basis.

Celebrating 120 years with trivia

Happy 120 years North Freedom Library!
