Library announces Fine Free Summer

The library is going fine free during the summer of 2020!  Library materials will still have the same loan periods, but any materials returned after their due date will not accrue overdue fines.  “We want people to stay home if they are feeling sick, or if they are in quarantine,” says Head Librarian Meriah Caswell.  “COVID-19 has put enough stress and hardship on our community.  The last thing we want is for our community to worry about library fines during this uncertain time.”


This move will also help keep library staff safe by lowering the number of interactions staff have with money.


All returned library materials are being quarantined for 72 hours before being allowed back into circulation.
