After a great deal of consideration, the Union County Carnegie Library is announcing that overdue fines will begin being applied to items checked out beginning Monday, October 12.  Circulation periods of two weeks will remain for all items, but fines will be charged for overdue books, magazines, and other library materials at a rate of $.15 (fifteen cents) per day.  Patrons will still have the opportunity for up to two renewals per item (pending there is no hold placed on the item by another patron) as long as the renewal takes place prior to the item’s due date.  While we regret any negative impact that the implementation of fines may bring, we also feel that it is a necessary step in the library’s development.  Revenue from fines will be used for the operations and services of the library.  However, the implementation of fines is not viewed as a punitive measure, but rather an opportunity to improve circulation as patrons are encouraged to return books on time, thus making the items available for future patron use.

Beginning October 12, 2015, the Union County Carnegie Library will begin charging fines on overdue materials.

Fines will be $0.15 (fifteen cents) per day on all materials.
