Library Fines Reduced December 2nd

Starting December 2, 2019 the Marion County Library System will be reducing its fines to better serve our community. It is the hope of MCLS and the Library Board that this reduction will make library services more accessible for all.

The changes are as follows:

0.10 cents/day for overdue print material

$3.00 maximum fine for a single overdue item

$5.00 cut off for borrowing privilege

All items checked in on or after December 2nd will automatically be subject to the new fine system, and all items checked in before will fall under the old fines. Patrons with a current fine balance can ask staff for a reduction to match the new fines. We are not able to offer this reduction automatically across the board due to restrictions in our software.

Please call or visit any of our branches with questions.
