Fines

Please be advised, beginning July 14th, 2021, fines for overdue items come into effect.

The 7-day quarantine for returned items does not affect fines. We will waive any charges accrued during this quarantine period upon check-in.

The fine limit that restricts borrowing will be increased to $50 until December 31st to allow more flexibility. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, users could not borrow library materials if they had up to $15 in fines. If you currently have fines exceeding $50, you are required to pay them beginning July 14th to continue accessing library collections. 

The Library Board has approved a fine forgiveness program until the end of 2021.

Overdue fines for Books, Books on CD, and Magazines are 25₵ per day, while DVD/Blu-Rays, ILLO, Parks Passes and Devices are $1 per day. For full details regarding fines, please view our Circulations and Fines Policy.

Payments can be made in person with cash or debit/credit (over $5) at the door, or you may call the library to make a credit card payment of over $5 via phone.

The library building remains closed to the public until further notice while we work on plans for a safe browsing experience for our community and staff. We are working towards Step 2 of the provincial framework and are aiming for an opening in mid July.

Did you know, revenue from overdue fines goes back to the library? Overdue fines help pay for things like new books and activities for children.

We will be waiving a portion of overdue fines until the end of the year. This fine forgiveness plan does not apply to other fines/fees such as lost/damaged charges, non-resident fees or non-pickup fees for interlibrary loan items. Please view the chart below for more details:
