We’re Going Fine Free April 8th!
Beginning Monday, April 8th, 2019, all Clark County Public Library locations will go fine free
(with the exception of interlibrary loan items).
The library will no longer be charging patrons late fees for items returned past their due date.
Some other details about the new policy include:
– Replacement charges will still be billed when an item is 28 days overdue.
– Items will go into long overdue status when they are 7 days overdue.
– Patrons will be blocked if they have 1 long overdue item or 25 overdue items. This means that you will not be able to place holds, checkout materials, etc…
If you are concerned about this move to no fines, we want to reassure you that we are taking other measures that are more effective to ensure that library materials are returned. These measures include a stricter circulation policy when it comes to overdue items, and beginning in June, contracting with an outside collection agency to contact patrons with non-returned items.
