Fine-Free Summer Reading for Kids

We understand that summers are busy for parents and kids. That’s why when you visit our libraries between June 8th and September 7th, if you borrow children’s items (holds too!) we will not charge you late fees.

This only applies to children’s items checked out from our libraries (but you can return them anywhere – still no fees). We still have to charge for lost/damaged items.

Full Details

Items designated as children’s items in the library’s system that are borrowed from the Halperin Building and West Harrison Branch between June 8 and September 7 will not accrue late fees if returned late, even if they are returned to other libraries. This also applies to items on hold from other libraries as long as they are checked out at the Halperin Building or West Harrison Branch.

This does not apply to Halperin Building or West Harrison Branch owned items that are on hold and checked out at other libraries. Items that are damaged or lost will incur a replacement charge for the price of the item designated in the library’s system.
