Marshall County Memorial Library is FINE FREE

What does this mean?
  • In a nutshell it means that we are not charging fines. If you bring an item back—you do not get charged a fine. Even if you have had it since WW II.
  • The only time that we are going to charge is for LOST ITEMS. IN other words—if you don’t bring it back—you have to pay for it.
What changes?
  • All fines should be wiped out. Please bear with us as we work through any technical challenges on our end as we roll out the policy. If you bring back an item and a staff member sees a fine on your account-- they should wipe it out and not charge a late fee. We are all getting used to this. Feel free to remind us if we forget and ask you for a late fee.
  • Nothing changes in regards to other circulation policies. Same check-out periods, renewal process, overdue processes (without fines attached—just a reminder), lost item processes. All the same.
  • If you have an item out over 21 days-- we will still send you a notice that it is "lost" and charge you the lost item fees. If you bring it back-- NO FINES!
Why are we doing this?
  • Many libraries are going fine free. The reasons vary—but basically being fine free removes a barrier to library services. This is especially true for children. They are “responsible” for their items but have to rely on their parents to ensure that items are returned on time. As a parent—I know that often my kids’ library items have been late for a variety of reasons. Most of which are my fault—not theirs.
  • We are doing this to alleviate the barriers and to encourage people to bring back their items. Ultimately—we want the stuff back so that we can continue to share it with the community. That’s the goal.
